Articles in Wikitravel can be greatly enhanced with the strategic addition of illustrative images. This article describes how to add images to a page. It assumes that you know:
No extra work is needed to use images on Wikitravel Shared, as the software will automatically check both the Shared and the local image repositories. Note that if the same filename exists on both the local site and the Shared site, the local image has precedence.
Please use thumbnails unless you have a good reason not to. The standard recipe for a thumbnail is as follows:
This will produce a right-aligned thumbnail with a description below; the image will expand to full size if clicked on. For example, the thumbnail on the right uses Image:Saddleback Pier.JPG from Shared, and it's created like this:

Note that you must add the letters "px" after the image size. Recommended maximum sizes are:
