This template creates a box containing between two and ten images, arranged either vertically or horizontally and with captions for the entire box or per image.
With the appropriate choice of parameters, the template can automatically resize images to a given total width with each image having the same height.
Be aware that this template does not respect users' default image size preferences. (Wikipedia:Image use policy states: "Except with very good reason, do not usepx"... "which forces a fixed image width. In most cases upright=scaling factor should be used, thereby respecting the user's base preference (which may have been selected for that user's particular devices).")
If image size parameters are omitted, this template sets all images at 200px wide, regardless of whether the reader has set a preference for some other default image width. This causes multiple images to look out of scale to the other images in an article.
Use to set the same width for each image (i.e. overrides any width[n] below). Do not include if different image widths intended, including if images are to be resized to a fixed total width.
Use to scale the images to the same height and this total width. Do not use both total_width and width.
(where [n] = 1 to 10) Filename of [n]th image.
(as above) Two meanings: (1) The width (in pixels, integer, omit "px") of [n]th image. Overridden by width (if set). (2) The full width of the original [n]th image if total_width is given in order to resize all images to the same height and a given total width.
(as above) The full height of the original [n]th image if total_width is given in order to resize all images to the same height and a given total width. Ignored otherwise.
(as above) To specify the page to which the [n]th image is linked (i.e. the page that is loaded when the image is clicked). If set as empty (e.g. ...|alt1=... |link1= |caption1=...), linking is disabled (even to the standard Wikipedia image description page); consider WP:ALT. Note: This parameter must not be used with images that have been given free licenses (such as the GDFL or a free CC license) as these licenses require images to be linked to a declaration of the license under which they are being used.

By default, the images the template presents are displayed horizontally, as a row (see left; equivalent to setting |direction=horizontal). To display them vertically, i.e. as a column, set |direction=vertical (see right).
On mobile devices some images may always be displayed vertically if the total width is larger than around 320.
Note: The following is unnecessary if all the images presented by the template have the same aspect ratio; if so, simply set width accordingly.
Decide on a total width for all the images, say 320px
Set the total width using |total_width=
Rectangular image of a donkey, originally 536 pixels high.
Square image of a trout, originally 300 pixels high.
Both images have been rendered with the same height, and a total width of 320px
| align = right
| total_width = 320
| image1 = Donkey 1 arp 750px.jpg
| alt1 = A donkey
| caption1 = Rectangular image of a donkey, originally 536 pixels high.
| image2 = Rainbow_trout.png
| alt2 = A trout
| caption2 = Square image of a trout, originally 300 pixels high.
| footer = Both images have been rendered with the same height, and a total width of 320px
The aspect ratio of each image is automatically retrieved from the File metadata. You can override the native width and height values by
Examining the individual image pages to obtain the full resolution. For example:
To create an array of images, with multiple rows, use |perrow=. The value passed to |perrow= may be a single number, or a list of numbers delimited by /. This feature may also be combined with |total_width= for multiple rows of images with the same total width.
