Template documentation[edit]

This template shows up to 100 images in an array. The number of images per row is based upon the width specified and the width of the screen.

For style guidelines about where galleries are appropriate, see Wikipedia:WP:IG.

This template requires a "File:" or "Image:" prefix for image names and an "altN=" prefix for alt text. It uses {{Gallery/aux}} to format individual images.

Parameters[edit source]

For each image[edit source]

Specify a line of the following form for each image.

|File:Filename|altN=Alt text|Caption
  • Filename is the image's file name. It can use a File: instead of an Image: prefix.
  • N should be 1 for the first image, 2 for the second image, and so forth.
  • Alt text is the alt text for the image, used by visually impaired and other readers who cannot see the image. See Wikipedia:Alternative text for images. If omitted, the image's alt text is blank.
  • Caption is the caption; see Wikipedia:Captions.

If no such lines are present, a gallery with a single question-mark image is produced. There is currently a limit of 100 such lines.

For the gallery overall[edit source]

These parameters are optional.

title
The gallery's title.
width
(default 180) Maximum width of each image.
height
(default 180) Maximum height of each image.
padding
(default 5) Pading of each image.
lines
(default 2) The number of text lines needed for the largest caption. Blank lines are appended to smaller captions. A caption that does not fit has a scroll bar added.
align
(default left) The alignment of the gallery (left, center, or right).
