Images and Graphics

Using images on your pages is easy. This page is a basic reference to be fleshed out.

Image Upload

Before you can use an image, it must be uploaded to the Image repository. You can upload JPEG and GIF format images. JPEGs of any size can be uploaded; they will be resized to be under 200K if they are too large. GIF images larger than 100K will be rejected; you should probably be using JPEG if the image is GIF and that large.

Using Images

To place an image on the page, put the image filename you were given after the image was uploaded -- including .jpg or .gif -- between a single set of square brackets []. Example: [sanctuary_snow_railing.jpg]. The image will break the flow of text and appear framed with the image's title and credit.

You can change the appearance of the image by adding commands after the filename, separated by semicolons. For example: [sanctuary_snow_railing.jpg;left;caption]. The command reference below explains each command, and there are examples at the bottom of the page.

Command Reference

  • left or right -- force text to flow around the image.
  • center -- centers the image horizontally (doesn't work with left or right).
  • full -- make the image full size.
  • bare -- removes the title and credit lines.
  • caption -- adds the full image caption.
  • inline -- makes the image flow along with the text.
  • any number -- makes the image the given width. (example: 100).
  • number x number -- makes the image fit in the given size. (example: 200x150).
  • nolink - do not make the image a hotlink to the image viewer.
  • link - link the image to the url that follows. if what follows is a number, link to that page.
  • zoom - the image is linked to the fully zoomed image viewer.

Samples

[sanctuary_snow_railing.jpg] - Draws the image in a frame with image name and credit. Image will be no larger than 250 pixels wide or high. The image will be by itself on a line. The user can click on the image to zoom in.
