From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

Guidelines

The current PCGamingWiki guidelines on images can be found in the Editing guide:


Embed uploaded images on pages

Embed individual images

To include an image on a article, use the {{Image}} template in the below form:

  • {{Image|File.png|Caption}} to embed the image with an appropriate caption.
Embed multiple images as part of a gallery

To include multiple images that are part of a collection, use the following format:

<gallery>
File1.png|Caption1
File2.png|Caption2
</gallery>
A caption is mandatory. The caption does not have to be lengthy, just a word or two describing the image.
Standard markup for placing files on pages is supported via the [[File:]] tag, but should be avoided where possible. Custom PCGW templates, such as the previously mentioned {{Image}}, should be used instead to ensure consistency across articles.


Upload form

Requirements:

  • File size lower than 16 MB.
  • Resolution lower than 12.5 MP (e.g. 4000x3125px or less).
    • While an image larger than 12.5 megapixels can be uploaded, no thumbnails will be generated for it.
