In addition to adding individual images to and article, you can also create image galleries. This is an easy way of displaying a large number of images.

Syntax

The basic syntax of an image gallery is:

<gallery>
File:UFPSeal.png
File:UFPSeal.png|Captioned
File:UFPSeal.png
File:UFPSeal.png|[[Federation|Links]] can be put in captions.
File:UFPSeal.png
File:UFPSeal.png|Full [[Help:Wiki markup|MediaWiki markup]]<br />syntax may be used…
</gallery>

Which produces:

Notice that there are no brackets except for links within captions. Captions are optional. Images are separated by new lines.

It is also possible to alter the thumbnails' maximum height and width, define how many images should be displayed per row, and specify a header caption for the entire gallery:

  • heights adjusts the maximum height and widths adjusts the maximum width of all thumbnails within a gallery
  • perrow adjusts the number of images per row
  • caption gives the gallery a caption

This example...

<gallery heights="200" widths="200" perrow="2" caption="performing gallery features">
File:UFPSeal.png|Caption
File:UFPSeal.png|Caption
File:UFPSeal.png|Caption
File:UFPSeal.png|Caption
</gallery>

...is rendered as...
