How To Insert Images On This Wiki


There are two ways to do this. You can use the URL of an image you have online, or attach an image file to your page (an image file ends in .jpg, .png, .gif, etc.).

  • To insert an image from the web you must copy the URL of the image itself (for instance, in Facebook, right click on the image and choose 'copy image location' from the available choices). Use an image you own or have the appropriate permission to use. Then add it to the following code:
[[image http://www.InsertAddressHere]]
Most images from the web are going to be huge. You can adjust the size by adding the code: height="300px" width="300px" in between the address and the closing square brackets. Play around with the size. The sunflowers were added with the following code:
1842790702_o.jpg height="300px" width="300px"]]
  • To insert an image from a file on your computer: You first need to attach them to the page. Click on the 'file' button at the bottom of your page, click on 'select file,' choose the one you wish to add and then click 'upload.' Make sure you attach it to your name page. It will only show up on the page to which it is attached. Then insert it as you would an image with a URL — just type in the file name where you would the URL. You can see how I added the picture of kale:
[[image kale.jpg]]
I did something different with the size. You can click on 'edit' to see what I did. You can also move an image to the right or center of the page.

Or have a floating image, meaning the text wraps around it.

To see how I moved the kale around, or anything else on this page, just hit 'edit.'
