To search the textual descriptions of previously uploaded files, press the Search button and then specify the Image and perhaps "Image Talk" namespaces.
One way to embed an image of an uploaded file is to use a link such as:
- [[Image:file.png|alt text]]
Note that the "alt text" will also be used as a caption if the "thumb" option is specified, e.g.
[[Image:Tibetan_Seal_with_the_word_Library.jpg|thumb|center|120px|The word "library"]]produces the following:
The caption can contain hyperlinks and can be centered using <center>...</center> tags, e.g.
[[Image:800px-IMG 0839 Yarlong Tsangpo.jpg|240px|left|thumb|<center>[[wikipedia:Yarlung Tsangpo River|]] in Tibet</center>]] renders the image on the left.
See wikipedia:Help:Image for further details.
The <image> tag may also be used to embed uploaded images and is especially useful if you want to specify the hovertext or the hyperlink associated with the image.
