Linking Images

In this section we are going to use the ZAM logo icon, seen at right, as our example. The ISIN of this image is 154775. It is attached to the wiki page at ZAM Network (Game Icon).

The image system we use here allows users to upload images to their personal images or directly attached to a wiki page, then keeps track of them by an Image System Identification Number. Users can then use this number to place an image in a wiki page. Below we cover the basics, only, of how this works.

[[image:154775]] displays the following image.

An image can be re-sized, both up and down. [[image:154775|20px]] displays the following image.

A frame, or box, can be added around the image. [[image:154775|frame]] displays the following image.

A caption can be added, but only if the image is also framed. [[image:154775|frame|Our logo]] displays the following image. thumb, covered below, is treated as a frame and can have a caption.

An image can be floated so that text appears next to it and flows around the image. Placement of the image link on the text section is important in some cases and usually works best if the image link is placed at the start of the text. [[image:154775|left]] displays the image you see to the left. right and center can also be used but text will not float around a centered image.

A thumbnail of a large image can be created so a small image is shown but clicking on the image will take you to the image page with the image shown full-size. right does not need to be added, as it is the default for all thumb images. right, left or center can be added, though. For this example we are using the full-size logo for Lord of the Rings Online. The link is [[Image:171023|thumb|LotRO Logo]]

Most of the options, above, can be used together to place the image and style it. To the right you see our logo with the following link: [[image:154775|thumb|left|Our logo]]

External images can be linked to using [[image:full_url_goes_here|100px|right|frame|This is just an example]]
