[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png]]

Small HA logo.png


Stand alone image with alt-text[edit]

You add "|caption text" after the image link. This is the text most browsers will show when you hover over the image with the mouse.

[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|The HA logo]]

The HA logo


Image options[edit]

The HA logo
thumbnail, thumb
Generates an automatically resized thumbnail image (either reduced or enlarged).
Caption text is displayed directly underneath. An "enlarge"-icon is added.
If you do not specify where the image should be place it will be places to the right.
Example to the right (in this example the image is enlarged because it is small):
[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|thumb|The HA logo]]


right
Makes the image right-aligned.


left
Same as above, but left aligned.


center
Same as above, but centered.


none
The image will be rendered inline, even if the thumbnail-option is set.


The HA logo
frame
The image will have a frame, regardless of whether it is a thumb, and the caption text will be included as a visible caption.
Example to the right:


sizepx
Renders a version of the image that's [size] pixels wide (e.g. '150px').
Height is computed to keep the aspect ratio (i.e. the shape of the image).
This allows both size reduction and enlargement.


Combining options
You can combine the options as you like. Example (as you see below resizing is often not very good):
[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|50px|left|none|The HA logo]]
The HA logo


[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|none|frame|The HA logo]]
The HA logo

Additional hints[edit]

You can avoid that the wiki system proccessing the text (to avoid unwanted formatting) by putting <nowiki></nowiki> around the text you want to parse directly.
