The basic code you use to put an image in your page is:
 +
<nowiki>[[Image:FILE_NAME.gif]]</font>
 +
Where you ''FILE_NAME.ext'' with the name of your file.
 +
 +
You can add extra things to the image tag to make your layout nicer. To re-size your image, you add ''|##px'', where ''##'' is the the width you want for your image. This tag would makes the picture 500 pixels wide:
 +
<nowiki>[[Image:FILE_NAME.gif|500px]]</nowiki>
 +
 +
To align an image, you use ''|center'', ''|left'', and ''|right''. The tag below will make the image be on the right side of the page, your text will wrap around it:
 +
<nowiki>[[Image:FILE_NAME.gif|right]]</nowiki>
 +
 +
If you want to add a caption to your image, you can use ''|frame'' or ''|thumb''. Frame doesn't allow you to re-size the image. Even if you put the code for re-sizing in, it just won't work. Thumb lets you re-size the image.
 +
<nowiki>[[Image:FILE_NAME.gif|frame|Your caption goes here.]]</nowiki>
 +
<nowiki>[[Image:FILE_NAME.gif|thumb|300px|Your caption goes here.]]</nowiki>
 +
 +
 +
[[Image:Elephant.jpg|right|thumb|250px|This image uses lots of fancy formatting.]]
 +
The following tag combines the above options, and produces the image shown to the right.
 +
<nowiki>[[Image:Elephant.jpg|right|thumb|250px|This image uses lots of fancy formatting.]]</nowiki>
