Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template shows up to 30 images in an array. The number of images per row is based upon the width specified and the width of the screen, which allows greater flexibility than the <gallery> tag.

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

This template is similar to {{Image gallery}}, except it requires a "File:" or "Image:" prefix for image names and an "altN=" prefix for alt text, whereas {{Image gallery}} requires neither prefix. Both templates use {{Gallery/aux}} to format individual images.

Parameters[edit source]

For each image[edit source]

Specify a line of the following form for each image.

|Image: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 w:Alternative text for images. If omitted, the image's alt text is blank.
  • Caption is the caption; see w:Captions.

If no such lines are present, a gallery with a single question-mark image is produced. There is currently a limit of 30 such lines.

For the gallery overall[edit source]

These parameters are optional.

The gallery's title.
(default 180) Maximum width and height of each image.
(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 is cut off.
