Help: Pictures

Photographs, drawings or other images may be uploaded and included in a web page using an Image tag. The general format is as follows:

[[Image:name|location|title]]
  • name - File name of the image.
  • location - right, left, or center (may be omitted)
  • title - Title of the picture (may be omitted)

If the image is in the same folder (directory) as the web page, only the name of the image need be given (e.g. building.jpg). If the image is in another folder, give its absolute location by starting with a slash (e.g. /image). For example, suppose your web page is in the "about" folder:

frederickuu.org/images/building.jpg

Uploading an image

At the bottom webpage editing page, there is a button labeled "Upload File." Clicking this will take you to the Uploading a File page. Follow the 4 steps, and when you press the Upload button, you will see an image link (e.g. [[Image:/place/imagename.jpg]]) which you can copy into your webpage (and modify, if you wish).
