Typically you would upload an image file to the wiki (See Help:Managing files) ...before you use the following wiki text to place the image on an article:

Description You type You get
Embed image
(with alt text)

[[Image:Example.jpg|Sunflowers]]

Sunflowers

Link to description page

[[:Image:Example.jpg]]
[[:Image:Example.jpg|Sunflowers]]

Image:Example.jpg
Sunflowers

Thumbnail
(centered, 100 pixels
wide, with caption)

[[Image:Example.jpg|center|thumb|100px|Sunflowers]]

Results in a very small gray border

Like thumbnail, respect user preferences for image width but without border and no right float.

Syntax[edit]

The full syntax for displaying an image is:

[[Image:{name}|{options}]]

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}px: Resizes the image to the given width in pixels
  • {caption text}
  • Special cases:
    • page=1: displays the specified page when showing a djvu file.

The options can be given in any order. If a given option does not match any of the other possibilities, it is assumed to be the caption text. Caption text can contain wiki links or other formatting.

Other files[edit]

You can link to an external file using the same syntax used for linking to an external web page.

  • [http://url.for/some/image.png]

Or with different text:

  • [http://url.for/some/image.png link text here]

If it is enabled on your wiki (see Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages), you can also embed external images. To do that, simply insert the image's url:

  • http://url.for/some/image.png

Gallery of images[edit]

It's easy to make a gallery of thumbnails with the <gallery> tag. The syntax is:

<gallery>
Image:{filename}|{caption}
Image:{filename}|{caption}
{...}
</gallery>

Captions are optional, and may contain wiki links or other formatting.

for example:

<gallery>
Image:Example.jpg|Item 1
Image:Example.jpg|a link to [[Help:Contents]]
Image:Example.jpg
Image:Example.jpg
Image:Example.jpg|''italic caption''
</gallery>

is formatted as:
