Open this page in edit mode to study how to format images. Quickie lesson: Click on any image to grab its file name, add "|right" and place it inside brackets like so: [[File:TheGreatWavesOfChange Medallion.jpg|right]]

See Wiki standards for media files for correct size parameters.

See Mediawiki Help:Images for instructions on resizing and placement of images on the page, but be prepared if nothing seems to work. If you can get anything to work besides what you see below, do share with your fellow editors on the WWWC site group for Wiki editors.

You won't notice where categories show up in preview mode until you do spot them below the Save/Preview buttons.

Book covers

These images also can be posted on any page and might best be applied to appear on the right at the bottom of the page, particularly where one book title is THE book to read on the topic. "Less is more" might be a good rule not to overuse these.
