Syntax for displaying an image
The full syntax for displaying an image is:
Where options can be zero or more of the following, separated by pipes:
|thumb, thumbnail, or frame||Controls how the image is formatted|
|left, right, center, none||Controls the alignment of the image on the page|
|width||Resizes the image to the given width in pixels (e.g. 100px)|
|caption text||Adds a caption to your image|
Linking to external files
You can link to an external file using the same syntax used for linking to an external web page.
Or with different text:
- [http://url.for/some/image.png link text here]
It's easy to make a gallery of thumbnails with the <gallery> tag. This is how us use it:
<gallery> Image:Filename.jpg|Caption 1 Image:Filename.jpg|Caption 2 etc. </gallery>
Captions are optional but strongly recommended, and may contain other formatting like links.
<gallery> Image:Testpicture_small.jpg|Item 1 Image:Testpicture_small.jpg|Item 2 Image:Testpicture_small.jpg|a link to the [[Main Page]] Image:Testpicture_small.jpg|''italic caption'' </gallery>
a link to the Main Page
