Uploading and Displaying images
From Monkey Island wiki
Here are some basic guidelines for uploading and displaying images on the wiki.
Is an image appropriate?
Images are meant to illustrate the material in the wiki, however not all articles will require illustration. Before uploading, you should decide if an image is appropriate for the article. Articles on subjects such as game characters, islands, locations and so on are most appropriate for inclusion of an image. You should look at other articles in the category to see the most common template for image display.
At the moment, most images are displayed using some variation on the following syntax:
[[Image:Test.gif|thumbnail|right|300px|Some caption for this test image]]
See below for an explanation of what these parameters mean.
In most circumstances, images from the original games are preferred. If you are taking a screenshot in ScummVM, for instance, make sure to turn off all graphical filters and resize the game to its original resolution. The wiki software will only display images in gif, png, or jpg form, so make sure your image is in one of these formats.
You should avoid uploading images found on the web, as their creators may not have licensed their redistribution. Material found on the World of Monkey Island website, however, is fine.
The best source of images are graphics ripped from the original games. This thread at LucasForums has a comprehensive list of ripping programs. Scumm Revisited will probably be the most useful. For Escape from Monkey Island use the EMI Resource Viewer.
If you want to look at what other people have uploaded to the wiki, or just want an idea of what sort of images are needed, go to Special:Imagelist.
To upload a file, go to Special:Upload, or just click on Upload file on the left sidebar. Add your image to the Source filename field using the Browse button. The Destination filename field is there in case there is already an image on the wiki with the same name. If you leave the field blank the file will be uploaded with its source filename. The Summary field should contain a short description of the image. See Special:Imagelist for examples of what should be included in a description.
You will be given a warning if the size of the image is greater than 150 KB, however you will still be able to upload. You will also be warned if your image has the same name as another image already on the wiki. Only continue uploading if your image is specifically intended as a replacement.
So, how to use the image in an article? Simply use the format [[Image:Test.gif]].
This displays the image as-is, with no positioning or formatting information included. For the above example, it will look like this:
Fortunately there are more specific ways of displaying an image in an article.
|[[Image:Test.gif|framed|A short description]]|| Places an image in a frame with a description. Uses original size and stubbornly ignores width parameter if given.|
In general, far better to use thumb, as is only suitable for small images.
|border||[[Image:Test.gif|border]]||Shows a 1px border around the image.|
|[[Image:Test.gif|thumbnail]]||Modifies image size, sets it dependent on user's favorite thumbnail size in one's preferences, or on the given width parameter (see below).|
|thumb=xyz||[[Image:Test.gif|thumb=Wiki.png]]||Manualthumb: instead of displaying an automatically-sized thumbnail for Test.gif, display the image Wiki.png.|
| width px|
| Scales image to given width in pixels|
Scales image to no more than 100 pixels wide and no more than 200 high, but image scaled to retain its true aspect ratio within the boundary specified.
Syntax for positioning of the image:
|right||[[Image:Test.gif|right]]||Modifies position, floats the image to the right.|
|left||[[Image:Test.gif|left]]||Modifies position, floats the image to the left.|
|none||[[Image:Test.gif|none]]||Explicitly states that the image should not float.|
|[[Image:Test.gif|center]]||Modifies position, like none but centered.|
All these parameters can be combined, so you can make a thumbnail of an image as well as align it to the right. If you want to explore how all this works, do image testing in the Sandbox with the test image.
