The image component embeds an image in your document. You can point to image files stored within the project, or an external URL.
Checkout the Markdown Guide for more details on configuring images.
To add an image to your document, a similar syntax to links is used but prefixed with an exclamation mark

 brackets. The following sample demonstrates adding a caption:
![This is an optional caption](/static/sample.jpg)
title attribute for the resulting HTML
<img> element can be set by adding the title text after the link. The title can be used differently within different browsers, but is typically shown as a tooltip when mouse pointer is held over the image. The following sample demonstrates adding a title:
![This is an optional caption](/static/sample.jpg "This is an optional title")
Hold your mouse pointer over the image to see the title.

||Center aligned in its container (default)|
||Float left aligned|
||Float left aligned with some negative left offset|
||Float right aligned|
||Float right aligned with some negative right offset|
||Center aligned plus negative offset both sides|
Check out the following sample page demonstrating all the image alignment scenarios, including plus options:
The plus alignment options only apply when the page is
layout: central or
For default page layouts with a left navigation and/or the right table of contents, the plus positions will fallback to their non-plus equivalents. For instance,
rightplus will fallback to
right and the
centerplus will fallback to
