Taking Screen Captures

Images on the Wiki are in-game screen captures, so please no original artwork.

1) Find what you want to take a picture of in-game.
2) If the game icons are in the way, Press "ctrl-g" on your keyboard to make them go away!
3) Press "Print Screen" on your keyboard to take the picture. (also labeled as "PrtScn")
4) Your Wizard101 Screen will show in Blue the name of the image you just captured.
5) Find your file in the "Desktop/My Documents/Wizard101" folder and open it.
   Open up a new file in Paint or any graphics program and press "ctrl-v" to paste the image into the new file.
6) Crop your image to a decent size (see the examples below)
Please don't cut-out the images without a background, they don't look great on the wiki.
7) FILE TYPES: All static images on the Wiki are .png files, so please save your image as a .png BEFORE you try to upload it.
To convert other file types to .png format open the image in a graphics editor such as Paint, click File > Save As, and select PNG as the type.
All Spell Animations are .gif files, so please contact a Wiki-Master about uploading spell animations (they take awhile to get right).

Example Images

Items often look best from the vendor or inventory view against the blue starry background (See more detailed instructions in this Guide).

Quest Dialogue Images

1) FIRST, tell the Quest page how many Dialogue images you want on it.

2) Press "Edit" at the top of the Quest page, then add the line:

| imagenum = X
(where X is how many dialogue images you want on the page)

3) Press "Save page" at the bottom of the editor window.

4) Now upload the Images using the RED link on the Quest Dialogue section!

See details below.

Uploading Dialogue Images

Scroll down to "Quest Dialogue" and click on "Expand" to open that section.

2) Then, click on the RED link for the missing Dialogue image. (See Below).

This automatically opens the Upload Page (See Right) and names the image for you!

Note: The standard Dialogue Image size is 800x180px.

Please add categories to your images when you upload them. See the Uploaded Image Categories below for names!

To categorize an image, simply add [[Category:Name of Category]] in the "Summary" box when you upload the image. (See Below Example)

For example, for Boot Images, type [[Category:Boot Images]] in the "Summary" box on the upload page.
For Quest Goal and Quest Dialogue images, the world in the [[Category:world Goal Images]] should be the same as the world shown at the bottom of the quest page.

Did you forget to add the category?

Click on the File after you upload it, "Edit" the file page from the tab at the top of the page, and type [[Category:Name of Category]] in the editor instead. Using the Summary box after uploading the image will not work.

If you still really aren't sure, ask a Wiki-Master on Central!

Manual Image Coding

If ever needed, you can manually include a file in a page by using a link in one of the following forms:

  • [[File:File.jpg]] to use the full version of the file
  • [[File:File.png|200px|thumb|left|caption]] to use a 200 pixel wide rendition in a box in the left margin with a caption
  • [[Media:File.ogg]] for directly linking to the file without displaying the file

You can also:

To view or search previously uploaded files go to the list of uploaded files, (re)uploads are also logged in the upload log, deletions in the deletion log.
