Wikipedia: Instructions / Pictures
October 28, 2021
This tutorial explains how to insert images into Wikipedia articles. That is one of the most frequently asked questions. There is also a page with extended syntax. The guide applies to images uploaded to Wikipedia as well as those in Wikimedia Commons. If you need help submitting or choosing the right image for your article, see our image usage policy and style guide. Images are protected by copyright on most Internet sites and should not be downloaded or sent here. Please send images in as high a resolution as possible, but the size of a single image should not exceed 100 megabytes. Before adding an image to an article, look at its description page to make sure that the copyright status is defined, preferably in the form of an appropriate license. Thumbnail image The image can be added to the article as follows: [[Image: ... | mini | ...]] as shown below. (Instead of "Image:" you can also use "File ::", "File:" or "File:" - editors are left to choose which of these variants to use.) Using the "mini" option, you get a reduced version of the image , whose size differs from the size of the original. There are several other options that can be used to influence the position and size of the image.
