Next: Horizontal Rules and Anchors, Previous: Implicit Links, Up: Markup Rules
Links to images may be used in either the target or the description, or both. Thus, the following code will publish as a clickable image that points to http://mwolson.org/.
Normally, images in the link part will be inlined.
If you want these images to be published as links instead, place the text “URL:” immediately in front of the link text. An example follows.
If a link to a locally-available image is encountered in the link description, Muse mode will attempt to display it if your version of Emacs permits this.
This behavior may be toggled with C-c C-i, or disabled permanently
by setting the
muse-colors-inline-images option to
The method for finding images may be altered by customizing the
muse-colors-inline-image-method option. One useful value for
this option is
muse-colors-use-publishing-directory, which tells
Muse mode to look in the directory where the current file will be
published. The default is to look in the current directory. Relative
paths like ‘../pics/’ should work for either setting.
Eventually, it is hoped that Muse will be able to copy images from the a
“source” directory to a publishing directory by customizing
muse-project-alist, but this has not been implemented yet.
The following example will display correctly and publish correctly if a PNG file called TestLogo.png exists in the ../pics/ directory. If text is on the same line as the picture, it will remain so in the output.
If you want to add a caption to an image, use the following syntax. This will center the image (if the output format supports it) and add a centered caption below the picture. Formats that do not support centering the image will instead leave it against the left margin.
[[../pics/mycat.png][My cat Dexter]]
Images with captions may only occur in their own paragraphs, with no text on the same line. Otherwise, the published output will not be syntactically correct.
