Assorted graphics information intended to become "Help: Graphics" someday

Image Gallery

For the extended syntax see Wikipedia: Help:Gallery_tag and Help:Images and other uploaded files for full list of parameters):

<gallery caption="Sample gallery" widths="180px" heights="120px" perrow="3">
File:Wiki.png|Caption text.
Note: The dotted line box above is created by </pre> ... </pre> . Note that text in the box does not wrap.
  • Captions are optional.
  • The File: prefix is optional.
  • Notice that there are no brackets except for links within captions.
  • A common mistake is to forget the closing gallery tag.
  • The default width and height are 120px.
  • If perrow= is omitted, the width is fluid: one row comprises as many images as will fit across the available width; this is now the recommended default. Prior to MediaWiki 1.17, the default was 4.

The web safe color palette contains 216 colors. Back when most computers only had 8-bit video cards, they could only view 256 colors. Out of those 256 colors, 40 of them looked different between Macs and PCs. The reason that the web safe color palette only has 216 colors is because of those 40 colors. Limiting the palette to 216 ensures that both Macs and PCs display all colors the same.

The names in this table can be used in all major browsers instead of the hex code or #rgb(r, g, b) notations to more easily document your color use.

NOTE: {{Color|red|example}} and {{TextColor|Text|orange}} have the ''COLOR'' arguments reversed!
