From Coastal Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following page describes how to include images in the Coastal Wiki.

There are 3 options available to show images in the wiki. There is also an option to show movies from the VLIZ fotogalerij in the the wiki.

Link to an image uploaded directly in the wiki

When you upload an image to the wiki using the upload file tool please make sure you:

  • do not upload any copyright protected materials
  • mention the author credits both in the file page where the image is stored as on the pages where you include the image.
  • if useful you can provide a description of the image on its file page

using the thumbnail tool

Inserting an image (image command):

 [[Image:filename.jpg|thumb|right|250px|Figure 1: CaptionText]]

this shows

Figure 1: CaptionText


This means that a thumbnail of the image is inserted at righthand side, with a size of 250px, with a caption. Instead of placing images at righthand side of the text it is also possible to place them at the lefthand side (“left”) in the centre (“centre”). It is also possible to align no text to the pictures by using “none”.

 [[Image:filename.jpg|thumb|left|250px|Figure 1]]
 [[Image:filename.jpg|thumb|none|250px|Figure 2]]

When you want to align two images horizontally, align the first image “left” and the other image “none”. To prevent subsequent text from being places alongside the images, include the line

 <br style="clear:both;"/> 

If you want to align more than two images, it may be useful to place them in a table. To create a table with more than two pictures, use:

 {|
 | [[Image:File.jpg|thumb|250px|Figure 1]]
 | [[Image:File.jpg|thumb|250px|Figure 2]]
 | [[Image:File.jpg|thumb|250px|Figure 3]]
 |}


Custom layout

In some cases the tumbnails are not compatible with the layout you envision for your page. You do not need to use the tumbnail and can use caption instead

e.g.

 [[Image:Figure_1.jpg|caption|right|250px|]] 

renders

Figure 1.jpg


You may which to add a description and or author credits. For this purpose a few custom options were developed The following code

 
{{Image
|position = right
|margin = 5px 5px 5px 5px
|width = 250
|wikiimage = Figure_1.jpg
|captionposition = right
|fontsize = 80
|caption = Foto: Credits
|link = http://www.coastalwiki.org/wiki/File:Figure_1.jpg
}}

Parameters:

  • "{{Image" calls up the template
  • Position: "left" or "right"
  • margin: determines the margin between your image and the text. The first value is the margin between the image and the text (or images) above it. The second to the right, the third below and the fourth value the margin between the image and the text (or images) to the left of it.
  • width: insert the width in px
  • wikiimage : provide the name of the wikipage storing the image (not the complete url)
  • captionposition: left, right or center
  • fontsize: in percentage relative to the normal font-size
  • caption: the caption displayed below the image
  • link: an URL link added to the image

which shows the same but with a small caption:

Figure 1.jpg
Foto: Credits




If you wish to position just the single image in the center of the page you can use the following code:

{{Image
|position= center
|margin = 0.4em auto 0.4em auto
|width = 250
|wikiimage = Figure_1.jpg
|captionposition = center
|fontsize = 80
|caption = Foto: Credits
|link = http://www.coastalwiki.org/wiki/File:Figure_1.jpg
}}

which renders

Figure 1.jpg
Foto: Credits


linking to a wiki page from an image

Use the code:

[[Image:Logonietinheemsesoorten.jpg|caption|150px|center|naar de lijst|
link=Lijst_niet-inheemse_soorten_Belgisch_deel_Noordzee_en_aanpalende_estuaria]]
  • naar de lijst = hover text which apears above the image
  • link = provides a link to a wiki page

Include an external image

If you simply provide a link to an image, it will displayed as an image. However it's preferred to use the following format when you wish to insert external image to your wiki page. Using external links to images has the benefit that they do not need to be stored in the wiki. However if the link to the image no longer resolves at some point the wiki page will display a dead link. So you should only use use this for images for which you know they will always stay available through this link.

<img title="insert text" src="http://www.coastalwiki.org/w/images/1/1e/Figure_1.jpg" style="width: 350px"/>

shows


  • where the link provided after src refers to the image.
  • you have a width component
  • the title component is responsible for the text you see when you hover with your mouse over the image.

If you need a caption you can use the same code as demonstrated above.

{{Image
|position = right
|margin = 5px 5px 5px 5px
|width = 250
|source= http://www.coastalwiki.org/w/images/1/1e/Figure_1.jpg
|captionposition = right
|fontsize = 80
|caption = Foto: Credits
|hover = insert text
|link = http://www.coastalwiki.org/wiki/File:Figure_1.jpg
}}

shows:

Height parameter

If you wish to align more than one image next to each other and would like to make sure that each image is the same height you can make use of the height parameter. Using this property requires you omit the width parameter form the template. This parameter only works for external and VLIZ images, it does not work in combination with the wikiimage parameter!

For example the code

 
{{Image
|position = left
|margin = 5px 5px 5px 5px
|vlizpicid=11482
|captionposition = right
|fontsize = 80
|caption = Foto: VLIZ (Coppieters) 
|hover = View of the galleries of Oostende. (04.07.07)
|link=http://www.vliz.be/en/multimedia/belgian-coast?pic=11482
|height= 200
}}
{{Image
|position = left
|margin = 5px 5px 5px 5px
|source= http://www.coastalwiki.org/w/images/1/1e/Figure_1.jpg
|captionposition = right
|fontsize = 80
|caption = Foto: Credits
|hover = insert text
|link = http://www.coastalwiki.org/wiki/File:Figure_1.jpg
|height= 200
}}
{{Image
|position = left
|margin = 5px 5px 5px 5px
|vlizpicid= 25165
|captionposition = left
|fontsize = 80
|caption = auteur: [http://www.vliz.be/wetenschatten/beeldbank.php?album=1218&pic=25165 E. Sacré in De Zuttere (1909)]
|hover = De vismijn te Oostende. (De Zuttere 1909)
|link = http://www.vliz.be/wetenschatten/beeldbank.php?album=1218&pic=25165
|height = 200
}}

renders 3 images aligned with the same height.

add a frame

It's possible to add a frame to the external and VLIZ picture gallery images. To add the default frame you can use the code

{{Image
|position = left
|margin = 5px 5px 5px 5px
|vlizpicid= 25165
|captionposition = left
|fontsize = 80
|caption = auteur: [http://www.vliz.be/wetenschatten/beeldbank.php?album=1218&pic=25165 E. Sacré in De Zuttere (1909)]
|hover = De vismijn te Oostende. (De Zuttere 1909)
|link = http://www.vliz.be/wetenschatten/beeldbank.php?album=1218&pic=25165
|height = 200
frame =1
}}

Which renders



There are 3 optional parameters to customize this frame:

  • frame: Add the name of the template you wish to use. Available names are 1 (templatefor Historical fisheries in Belgium) and custom. More info on this see http://www.coastalwiki.org/wiki/Template:Image/frame/
  • frameborder: This parameter used in combination with template custom can be used to set the thickness and color of the frame. To use frames of different colors you can use HEX color codes.
  • framecolor: This parameter used in combination with template custom allows you to select different background colors you can use HEX color codes.
  • framemargin: This parameter used in combination with template custom allows you to determin the margin between the picture and the border of the frame.


The following example which includes a customized frame

{{Image
|position = left
|margin = 5px 5px 5px 5px
|vlizpicid= 25165
|captionposition = left
|fontsize = 80
|caption = auteur: [http://www.vliz.be/wetenschatten/beeldbank.php?album=1218&pic=25165 E. Sacré in De Zuttere (1909)]
|hover = De vismijn te Oostende. (De Zuttere 1909)
|link = http://www.vliz.be/wetenschatten/beeldbank.php?album=1218&pic=25165
|height = 200
|frame =custom
|frameborder = 3px solid #0059b3
|framecolor =  #00ff55
|framemargin = 5
}}

would render the following



Include movie from the VLIZ fotogalerij
