WikiMedia Commons is a website that stores open-copyright material (particularly pictures) online for use in many Wikis (like this one!).
Note: this is a fantastic way to incorporate medical images into a page without having to upload.
One of the most useful features for Medical students is the collection of plates from Gray's anatomy, available here. I suggest searching through Gray's Anatomy textbook and finding the plate that is relevant based on topic.
To incorporate one of these images into your page, just use the following procedure:
- Find the file you're interested in by browsing WikiMedia Commons
- Locate the filename e.g. Gray33.png
- Incorporate the file in a thumbnail:
which produces the thumbnail to the right.
Or you can incorporate the file/s in a gallery:
<gallery> File:Gray33.png|An image File:Gray34.png|Another image File:Gray35.png|Yet another image image </gallery>
