Multiple image

This template creates a box with two to ten images arranged vertically or horizontally with captions for the entire box and/or for each images.

Template parameters
Parameter Description Type Default Auto value Status
Align align left/right/center/none string right empty optional
Direction direction horizontal/vertical string horizontal empty optional
Width width width overrides width1, width2, width3, etc. If you want the images to be different sizes, do not provide the width parameter. Integer width in pixels; no 'px' suffix string empty empty optional
Background color background color defines the background color between the border of the box and the images. string empty empty optional
Header header no description string empty empty optional
Footer footer no description string empty empty optional
Header align header_align left/right/center string center empty optional
Footer align footer_align left/right/center string left empty optional
Header background header_background no description string empty empty optional
Footer background footer_background no description string empty empty optional
Image1 image1 image1 is name of first image. Similarly for image2, etc. File name only; no 'File:' or 'Image:' prefix. string empty empty optional
Width1 width1 width1 is width of first image. Similarly for width2, etc. number empty empty optional
Alt1 alt1 alt1 is [[alt text]] of first image (see [[WP:ALT]]). Similarly for alt2, etc. string empty empty optional
Caption1 caption1 caption1 is caption of first image. Similarly for caption2, etc. string empty empty optional
Link1 link1 is where the first page links to. Similarly for link2, etc. If not specified, image links to the image description page as usual. If specified to the empty value, the image does not link anywhere; this should be used for purely decorative images as per [[WP:ALT]]. Important: If the image is under a free license like the GFDL or a CC license, you must not use this parameter as the terms of those licenses require the license, or a link to it, to be reproduced with the image. The image must, therefore, link to its image page. Public domain and (theoretically) fair use images are not subject to this restriction. wiki-page-name empty empty optional
Image2 image2 no description unknown empty empty optional
Width2 width2 no description unknown empty empty optional
Alt2 alt2 no description unknown empty empty optional
Caption2 caption2 no description unknown empty empty optional
Link2 link2 no description unknown empty empty optional
Image3 image3 no description unknown empty empty optional
Width3 width3 no description unknown empty empty optional
Alt3 alt3 no description unknown empty empty optional
Caption3 caption3 no description unknown empty empty optional
Link3 link3 no description unknown empty empty optional

Horizontal placement

Vertical direction places the images on one column, while horizontal direction places the images on one row:

vertical

horizontal

Matching image heights

This trick is not required if all images have the same aspect ratio, where |width= suffices
  • Decide on a common height for the images, say 100 pixels.
  • Examine the individual image pages to obtain the full resolution. For example:
  • For non-square images, use these figures to construct an expression for the |widthn= parameters, of the form:
    • {{#expr: (dh * ow / oh) round 0}}
  • where
    • dh is the desired height in pixels (100)
    • ow is the original width in pixels (750 or 300)
    • oh is the original height in pixels (536 or 300)
  • For square images, simply set the appropriate |widthn= to be the desired height. If all are square, only |width= needs to be set.
A donkey
A donkey, not square and originally 536 pixels high
A trout
A fish, square and originally 300 pixels high
The two images are both rendered 100 pixels high
{{multiple image
| footer    = The two images are both rendered 100 pixels high
| align     = right

| image1    = Donkey 1 arp 750px.jpg
| width1    = {{#expr: (100 * 750 / 536) round 0}}
| alt1      = A donkey
| caption1  = A donkey, not square and originally 536 pixels high

| image2    = Rainbow_trout.png
| width2    = 100
| alt2      = A trout
| caption2  = A fish, square and originally 300 pixels high
}}
