How to put an image in your description or on a wiki


This is a guide to instruct you how to add an image from another website to your wiki or house description. Before you add any image to Elftown, please be sure you are familiar with the Uploading Art Rules.

1. Right-click on the image.
2. Go to ''properties'' or "View Image Info"
3. Copy the URL. (The thing that starts with: http:)
4. Paste the URL inside an image-tag: <img:the URL>
Now it should look like <img:>
Note: You can make it shorter if the image is on Elftown, by removing from the URL (As it's still a working URI).
5. Save the changes as usual.

You can also use this method to add images to messages, diaries, and forums. It does work in wiki comments, but remember that many people don't like huge images in wiki comments, so it's a good idea to resize it by putting f.e. 100 between <img and :URL> (Like <img100:URL> It will be clickable and link to the bigger image).

You can resize the images, rotate them, put them to the right or left of the text and make them links to wiki-pages.
Read all about it on <URL:pseudo_html.html> or pseudo HTML.
