Help:Image markup

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

Help:Contents

This page is a tutorial for using the wiki image-formatting syntax available starting with MediaWiki 1.2 (upgraded in March 2004). The image markup is backwards-compatible, so old instances of images do not need to be upgraded — they already meet the current standards. However, there are a number of additional features available to make the presentation of images in an article cleaner and more attractive.

Basic Syntax[edit]

The basic format for displaying an image inline is still [[File:Wiki.png|Caption text]].

Available Styles[edit]

thumbnail, thumb 
generates an automatically resized thumbnail image, normally on the right, with the caption text displayed directly underneath. An "enlarge"-icon is added. Example: [[File:Wiki.png|thumb|Caption text]]
frame 
The image will have a frame, regardless of whether it is a thumb, and the caption text will be included as a visible caption.
right 
make the image right-aligned, can be used with and without specifying thumb
left 
same as above, but left aligned.
none 
The image will be rendered inline, even if the thumbnail-option is set
sizepx 
render a thumbnail version of the image that's [size] pixels wide (e.g. "150px"). Height is computed to keep aspect ratio (i.e. the shape of the image).

Vertical bars (the pipe "|" character) are used to separate options from each other and from the caption text. Unknown options are ignored and the final parameter is used as the caption text.

Galleries[edit]

You can also make galleries of images. These are made by using the <gallery> tags.

<gallery>
File:Wiki.png|Gallery text
File:Homer.png|[[Homer Simpson]]
File:Blank.png|Blank image
File:No image.png|No image
</gallery>

This can be used to make this:
