Images

Uploading

Upload.jpg
Once you're logged in, there will be a toolbox on the left-hand side of the page. In it will be an Upload file link. If you can't find it, click here to upload the file.

Once you have clicked Upload file, you'll be taken to a page similar to this:

Upload2.jpg
To upload an image on your computer, click Browse and locate the file of interest. If you want, write a brief summary about the image. Once you've located the file, click the Upload File button.

If all goes well, you'll be taken to a page that shows the image. One error you might get is that a file is larger then the recommended file size. You can try and resize your image on the computer, then re-upload the file.

Image Syntax

To add an image, use:

[[Image:ImageFileName|{type}|{location}|{size}|{caption}]]

{type}, {location}, {size}, and {caption} are all optional. Anything that is not recognizable as {type} {location} or {size} is treated as a caption.

  • type: allowed values are 'thumb', 'thumbnail' or 'frame'. If this is left blank, there is no box around the image, and it doesn't display a caption
  • location: allowed values are 'right', 'left', 'center' or 'none'. Text will wrap around 'left' or 'right' but not around 'center'. Use {{Clr}} to prevent text below from wrapping.
  • size:{width}px width in pixels. Ignored if type is 'frame'.

Using Images

Using the name you uploaded your picture as, type: 
 INPUT: [[Image:logo.jpg]]

logo.jpg

Align the picture to the center, left or right of the page:
 INPUT: [[Image:logo.jpg|center]]
logo.jpg
Make the picture have a thumbnail and a caption
 INPUT: [[Image:logo.jpg|thumb|right|50px|Caption goes here]]
Caption goes here
