Customizing Image Formatting

You can mix things up! Here's an example...
I want to make my picture...
  • 100 pixels (100px)
  • Link to Pets (link=Pets)
  • Make it at the center of the page (center)

Note: Use a vertical bar "|" to seperate commands.

Input

[[File:NewFissy.png|100px|link=Pets|center]]

Output
NewFissy

HTML Tags

<span> Tag

The HTML <span> tag is used for grouping and applying styles to inline elements. In other words, the tag focuses on the text only.

<span> allows you to import CSS styles, such as background color, color, etc. that will make text appear differently such as highlighting!
