Using images on articles

See also, Wikiquote:Manual of Style#Images.
  1. The best width for a picture is 250 pixels, and less than 150 pixels wide is too small.
  2. Do not say who took a photo in an article. That information should be on the image description page only.
  3. Use a good caption - tell who is in the image and sometimes what it's about.
