How to insert images

Images are added and formatted in a similar way to links. When uploading images, it is recommended that you upload them as a PNG file; this helps preserve the quality of the pictures a lot better than a JPG file does. [[File:Name.png]]
To ad alt. text
[[File:Name.png|Alt text]]
To make a thumbnail
To specify the size of the image (bigger numbers enlarge the image, smaller numbers shrink it)
[[File:Name.png|200px| ]]
To align the image (write down either left or right)
You can combine these attributes by putting a pipe symbol "|" between them. Remember, anything after the last pipe is text.
