The basic syntax of an image gallery is:

File:Memory Alpha.svg
File:Memory Alpha.svg|Captioned
File:Memory Alpha.svg
File:Memory Alpha.svg|[[Memory Alpha:About|Links]] can be put in captions
File:Memory Alpha.svg
File:Memory Alpha.svg|Full {{h|Wiki markup|MediaWiki markup}}<br />syntax may be used…

Which produces:

Notice that there are no brackets except for links within captions. Captions are optional. Images are separated by new lines.

  • perrow adjusts the number of images per row
  • caption gives the gallery a caption

This example...

<gallery heights="200" widths="200" perrow="2" caption="performing gallery features">
File:Memory Alpha.svg|Caption
File:Memory Alpha.svg|Caption
File:Memory Alpha.svg|Caption
File:Memory Alpha.svg|Caption
</gallery> rendered as...
