MediaWiki User Guide/Images
Mediawiki supports the use of images in various formats. In order to be used in a wiki, image first needs to be uploaded, to which we come later.
The following is an overview of placing images into pages, such images that have already been uploaded.
|Image||[[Image:image_name.png]]||No||The image is shown in its full size as found in the file.|
|Image with thumb||[[Image:image_name.png|thumb|A caption text of the image.]]||Yes||Thumbs are always scaled down so as not to exceed an upper limit on the size.|
|Image without thumb, with restricted size||[[Image:image_name.png|150px]]||No|
Images can be put into a gallery as follows. Notice the absent "[[" and "]]" around the names of the image files.
<gallery> Image:name_1.png Image:name_2.jpeg </gallery>
Images in galleries can be given captions, as follows.
<gallery> Image:name_1.png | Caption 1. Image:name_2.jpeg | Caption 2. </gallery>
