Template:Multiple image/doc

From M3P
Jump to: navigation, search

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.

Usage

  • align defaults to "right"
  • direction defaults to "horizontal"
  • header_align defaults to "center"
  • footer_align defaults to "left"
  • image1 is name of first image. Similarly for image2, etc.
  • width1 is width of first image. Similarly for width2, etc.
    • width overrides width1, width2, width3, etc. If you want the images to be different sizes, do not provide the width parameter.
  • alt1 is alt text of first image (see WP:ALT). Similarly for alt2, etc.
  • caption1 is caption of first image. Similarly for caption2, etc.
  • 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.
  • background color defines the background color between the border of the box and the images.
  • header, footer, background color and captions are optional.

Template:-

Horizontal placement

Vertical direction places the images on one straight line (column) downwards from the first image, while horizontal direction places the images left to right on multiple lines (rows):

vertical

horizontal


However, this will not be apparent if only two images are used, as the template with "direction = horizontal" will place both images on different lines (rows), creating a blank space. Thus Template:Double image must be used. Similarly, if one wishes to display three images side-by-side on one line, Template:Triple image must be used.

Matching image heights

This trick is not required if all images have the same aspect ratio, where Template:Para 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 Template:Para 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 Template:Para to be the desired height. If all are square, only Template:Para 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
}}
