How to add your photo to a wiki article

I would like to help others and to help myself by being able to write the article on How to add your photo to a wiki article. I can compress an image, and upload it, but at the moment that is as far as I can take it. This is for images from cameras which people are prepared to place in the public domain. I have read and tried but to no avail. The furthest I got was to create a link to my photo; it did not get imbedded in the article. I know the instructions are there somewhere, deep in the many pages of detail. I would like to have and write (or provoke the writing of) the BRIEF SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS for embedding a picture in a wiki article. Garrison Roo

In my Wiki, it's just: [[Image:imagename.jpg]] -douglas

Smap

I am unable to find the source of the smap that appeared on this page. How was that done? Did sb. edit a template? Why does it not show up when viewing the archived versions?

use of tags

MediaWiki_User's_Guide:_Editing_overview#The_wiki_markup suggests the use of small tags would be appriopriate when writing captions, however editors don't have to worry about the appearance of their captions as that's dealt with by the rendering engine.

When is it appropriate to create a level 1 heading, like

= foo = ? 65.101.207.237 23:19, 11 Dec 2003 (UTC)

It's never appropriate. The page title is the level 1 heading; adding extra ones will confuse the table of contents generation. The markup only allows it because the Poles threatened to beat us up. --Brion VIBBER 23:56, 11 Dec 2003 (UTC)

The links under See Also lead to nonexistent pages. I assume the links originally came from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:How_to_edit_a_page. Should they be directed back there, or should that content be copied here?
