Upload the Image to DarkWiki

You can upload images directly to DarkWiki by using this page: Special:Upload. Once uploaded, include the image in a page using a link in the form [[Image:File.jpg]]

Note: External hosting should not be used with the wiki, as external hosts tend to disappear, either temporarily or permanently, leaving the wiki articles without images. And since an image is worth 1000 words...

Floating images

Floating left

See here for how to achieve that effect.

Resizing images

You can ask the wiki to resize an image to any width by add |XXXpx in the image link, where XXX is the number of pixels, f.i. 220. Make sure that it is not too big or small.

This image is scaled to 320 pixel This image is scaled to 240 pixel This image is scaled to 160 pixel
