All images added to this wiki must be "free-use". That is, they must be either:

  • public domain or
  • licensed by the copyright holder under a licence that allows anyone to reuse the images.

It's important that we do not add images taken from other websites as these are usually not free-use and would be copyright violations. See Help:Image copyright tags for more detail on licences and how to tag your images.

Uploading Edit

  • To upload images you must be logged in.
  • Click on "Upload file" in the toolbox on the left (under the search boxes)
  • The "Browse" button lets you find the image on your hard drive. Click "open" to select the file.
  • If you want to change the file name, you can do so in the "Destination filename" box.
  • Use the "Summary" box to enter the source of the file and the image copyright tag.
  • Click "Upload".

You will be warned if the name will be changed or if there is already a file with that name. You can then decide whether to go ahead or to abandon the upload.

Using images Edit

To use an image in an article, you simply surround the full name (including the "Image" part) in double square brackets:

[[Image:Example.jpg]] will give you: Example
You can resize by adding the size in pixels between two pipes:

[[Image:Example.jpg|50px|]] will give you: Example

You can make an image a thumbnail an image by adding "thumb" in the same way. If a pipe is there from a previous variable, you don't need to add another:

[[Image:Example.jpg|50px|thumb|]] will give you:
Example

This is automatically formatted to the right of the page. You can change this by adding "left" or "center":

[[Image:Example.jpg|50px|thumb|left|]] will give you:
Example

Anything after the last pipe becomes the alt text or the caption:

[[Image:Example.jpg|50px|thumb|left|Alt]] will give you:
Example

Alt


To link to a file without showing it on the page, you can use "Media" instead of "Image":

[[Media:Example.jpg]] will give you: Media:Example.jpg
To link to the image page instead, use a colon before the word "Image":

[[:Image:Example.jpg]] will give you: Image:Example.jpg
Finally, to create a gallery of images you can use the <gallery> tag:

<gallery>
Image:Example.jpg|1
Image:Example.jpg|Captioned
Image:Example.jpg|Links can be put in captions
</gallery>

will give you:
