There are two ways you may use to insert an image in an article; you may either reuse an existing and already uploaded image, or you may upload a new one.

Note Note: We suggest you to try and reuse existing images whenever possible. This will lead to a cleaner, more consistent site which will be easier to update. From the user's point of view, you will save time avoiding taking a screenshot, editing and uploading it.

Reuse an existing image

Sometimes it's easy to find an existing image. For instance, if you intend to use the image of a GeoAgro GIS tool icon, there's a very good chance you will be able to find it in the.

Once you've found your image, click on it to see corresponding entry in the wiki. For instance, for the image, this is the corresponding entry.

In this case, the link is http://wikiagro.com/en/Image:GIS_gis_Edit_01.jpg entry; this means that the name of the image is GIS_gis_Edit_01.jpg. Edit your article, then use the FCKEditor Image insertion tool Image:WikiHelp_01.png, then look for the name of your image and insert it.

Insert a new image

In case none of the existing images would suit your needs, you may insert a new image. Under the Toolbox (in the sidebar to the left of your screen) click on "Upload file", then follow the steps to upload your image.

To insert your image, edit your article, then use the FCKEditor Image insertion tool Image:WikiHelp_01.png, then look for the name of your image and insert it.
