Syntax

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, frame, or frameless: Controls how the image is formatted
  • left, right, center, none: Controls the alignment of the image on the page
  • baseline, sub, super, top, text-top, middle, bottom, text-bottom: Controls the vertical alignment of the image on the page
  • {width}px: Resizes the image to the given width in pixels
  • Special cases:
    • page=1: Displays the specified page when showing a djvu file
  • link={destination}: Allows to link to an arbitrary title, URL or just nowhere
  • alt={alternative text}: For changing the alternative text (alt="") of an image

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

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]


Gallery of images

It's easy to make a gallery of thumbnails only, not other images, with the <gallery> tag. The syntax is:

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

Note that the image code is not enclosed in brackets when enclosed in gallery tags.
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''
Image:Example.jpg|on page "{{PAGENAME}}"
</gallery>

is formatted as:

Parameters

The gallery tag itself takes several additional parameters:

<gallery {parameters}> {images} </gallery>
  • caption={caption}: sets a caption on the gallery.
  • widths={width}px: sets the widths of the images.
  • heights={heights}px: sets the (max) heights of the images.
  • perrow={integer}: sets the number of images per row.
