Uploading

Advanced: If possible, please add a category to images when you upload them. For example, if you've just uploaded some Art, add this to the description box:

[[Category:Art]]

Other useful categories are:

[[Category:HeroBlade panels]]
[[Category:HeroBlade]]
[[Category:Particle effects]]

Adding an image to a userpage

Step-by-step instructions:


Using an uploaded image

To use an image on a page, insert the following code:

[[Image:<filename>]]

Images can have multiple qualifiers, which follow the filename and are separated with "|" pipe symbols.

The order of the arguments does not matter, except that the first argument must always be the image name, and the caption (if one is used) must always be at the end.

Example: This syntax would create a thumbnail of "apple.jpg", which would be right-aligned on the page, 200 pixels in size, and had a caption:

[[Image:apple.jpg | thumb | right | 200px | This would make an example of a 200-pixel thumbnail]]

Embedding a link without displaying the image

To embed a link to an image, without displaying the actual image, prepend a colon to the image name:

Example

[[Image:Target_lanky_morph.jpg | center | thumb | 100px| Example of a 100 pixel thumbnail]]

Example of a 100 pixel thumbnail

Non-image files

Files that are not images can be uploaded in the same way as images, with two exceptions:

[[Media:test.zip]]

or

[[Media:test.zip | Download this file]]
