Ported from Template:Plain image with caption:

Since MediaWiki does not provide a way to add visible captions to images integrated seamlessly in a page (i.e, without borders), this template aims to provide that functionality.

Usage[edit]

This template can be either with named parameters, as in

{{Plain image with caption|image=Example.svg|caption=Example text|width=250px|align=right|caption position=bottom}}

...or in its shorthand form:

{{Plain image with caption|Example.svg|Example text|250px|right|bottom}}
  • The only compulsory parameters are image and caption.
  • When using the shorthand version, keep in mind that the order of parameters is important
Parameter Default Acceptable values
image mandatory any image filename ("File:" or "Image:" is optional)
caption mandatory any valid wiki markup
width 250px any pixel width ("px" suffix optional)
align right left, center, right
caption position bottom top, bottom
triangle none triangle, none
triangle color #ff0080 any css color
image override Anything (lets you replace the image block with anything—useful for stacking image overlays)
caption override Anything (lets you replace the caption block with anything)

—Examples—

The triangle parameters give the option to add a colored triangle label—

Using "image-override" to stack images

Grana structure The prevailing model for granal structure is a stack of granal thylakoids linked by helical stromal thylakoids that wrap around the grana stacks and form large sheets that connect different grana.
