This page gives you more details of how to uploading an image and how to format the image in an article.


Uploading an image

User can embed own images in the article. It's required to follow 3 steps:

1. You need to type following code to your article:
[[Image: example.jpg]]

You can put any file name to replace "example.jpg". After that, click "Save page" button. You will get following:

Upload step1.jpg

As you can see, red link means that the image named "Examples.jpg" does not exist. If you got a blun link, it means that this image has already existed. Therefore, you need to change the file name.

2. If the link is red, you need to click it and get the screen like following:

Upload step2.jpg

You can click "Browser" button to locate the image in your computer. And you also can type somethings described the image in the summary box. After that click "upload file" button.

3. Coming back to your article, the image has been already embedded in your article.
