Adding an image to an article

Adding images to an article is an important way of illustrating various imaging examples of that condition. Ideally, there should only be one image per case (usually the 'best' image) per article unless you wish to highlight a specific point, or it is a rare condition with only one case available to illustrate a variety of features/modalities. 

Adding an image to an article
  1. select a specific image to add
    • visit the case you wish to include
    • find the specific image you want
    • click the little pin icon on the top left of the image
  2. adding to article
    • visit the article you wish to add the image to
    • enter edit mode by clicking the "edit article" button (top right)
    • click "add image" (to the right of the title)
    • the image management console will load
    • click the "pinned images" tab and find your recently pinned image
    • click the green cross icon (top left of the image thumbnail)
    • close the image management console
  3. add a caption
    • click black caption bar
    • "edit caption" pop up box will appear
    • add Case X or Figure Y (see below)
Caption format

For consistency captions should be in the following format: 

[Case X]  or [Case X]: [description], description is optional.

Examples:

  • Case 1
  • Case 1: glioblastoma
  • Figure 1: histology

Note: there should only be two spaces, one between the word "case" and the number, and the second between the colon and the description. 

The order of sequential cases (i.e. Case 1, Case 2, Case 3) if from left to right and then row by row (i.e. the top row is Case 1 and Case 2. The second row is Case 3 and Case 4). Figures can be interspersed with the cases, but generally, Figure 1 should be on in the top row along with Case 1.
