How to add a picture or graphic to an article

To add an image to a page, type [[File:image-file-name.jpg|caption]] where you want to insert the image. You can add various options separated with a vertical bar: "|", also known as a "pipe", after the image name. For example, [[File:image-file-name.jpg|thumb|185px|A caption]] will automatically generate a right-aligned thumbnail of the image with a width of 185 pixels and the caption "A caption", and [[File:image-file-name.jpg|left]] will produce a left-aligned full size image version. Bonus tip: Adding a video or audio clip uses nearly the same procedures.
