    How do I add an image to a page?
    When adding an image to a page, it is important that you upload the image properly to wikispaces so it is stored on the wikispaces servers. If you find an image on the Internet (one holding a Creative Commons license, of course), right click on it and select "Save Picture As..." Save the picture to your network folder if you are at school, or to your computer/USB memory stick if you are at home. Remember to use the naming conventions mentioned above. Within wikispaces go to the page you are editing, select the "File" button and follow the instructions for uploading and inserting a file. A few people have found their files won't load using this method. As an alternative, select the "Manage Wiki" link in the top sidebar on the left. Select the "Files" icon in the "Content" section and follow the instructions for uploading files. If you are still having difficulties, select "click here to use our single file upload tool" and follow the instructions. Once the image has been successfully uploaded, go to your page, select the "File" icon and follow the instructions for inserting a file. Ideally, files should be on the order of 20 - 30 KB. I have seen a few that are quite large and, consequently, slow to load. Look at the instruction above for reducing the file size of an image.
    WhyWhy can't I
    You can just copy and paste an image, but there are a couple of problems. Firstly, the image isn't actually housed on the wikispaces site; it is still being hosted by the original site where you found it. If the site is blocked at school, you won't be able to see it. If the site is taken off-line, your image is taken off-line, as well. Secondly, when anyone views your page, the internet traffic is directed to an external site. I wouldn't expect there would be a lot of traffic across our wiki, but it is good web practice not to direct traffic through other host's servers for your own benefit. One of the things that we are hoping you are all getting from this is an understanding of good practice.
