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:

  • 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:

Image Sizes

The best way to get the right size image on your webpage is to upload an image of the right size. You may also specify a maximum height or width in the Image: tag.


Include an option in the Image link like "H200" where H means height and the 200 is the height in pixels. (e.g. )


Include an option in the Image link like "W300" where W means width and the 300 is the width in pixels. (e.g. )

Height and Width

You can include both H and W but remember these are maximum height and width. The aspect ratio will not change.

Frame and Shrink


Use |FRAME| to draw a box around your image.


Use |SHRINK| to let the image shrink if there is not enough room to fit it full size.

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).
