Images

To add a picture to a page, use the Wiki code [[image:imagename.ext|frame|Image by [http://author-website.com Author Name] ]]. After you press Show Preview or Show Page you can click the link to upload the image.

Rules:

  • Your image needs a unique name, otherwise you'll get an image that already exists.
  • Accepted image formats are 'gif','png','jpg','jpeg','svg'. Accepted document formats are 'xls','doc','ms','mcr','py','mel','hlsl','fx'.
  • Image size should be 150 KB or less, though larger images are permitted.
  • Where possible, get the artist's permission before posting their image.
  • Always add a caption and an artist credit. The artist's name should be a link to their website.
  • Images should always be within a frame, to make sure the caption and credit display directly below the image.

Image Actual Size

An image within a frame, aligned right, and not using a thumbnail. The <br clear="all"> tags prevent text from wrapping around the image, so it stands alone. Alignment options are left, center, or right.

Image Tables

Images can be arranged side-by-side in a table. The default thumbnail width is 180 pixels. This can be overridden by replacing |thumb| with |thumb|300px| , using whatever pixel size you wish. You can change the background color to #333333 if you want to match the current wiki skin (making the border invisible).
