Syntax

The full syntax for displaying an image is:

[[Image:{name}|{options}]]

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 page 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.

Or with different text:

If it is enabled on your site, you can also embed external images. To do that, simply insert the image's url:

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 page 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>
