Notes

Calculating "image_upright"

The image_upright parameter, and image2_upright and logo_upright where applicable, is/are provided so as to facilitate the use of scalable images in this infobox, in accordance with the instructions at WP:IMAGESIZE, which advises against the use of px (e.g. thumb|300px), as this forces a fixed image width. Scalable images respect the user's base preference (which may have been selected for that user's particular devices). Module:InfoboxImage, which is used in this infobox, accommodates the use of scaling. However, setting the appropriate scale is slightly more complex than setting a raw "px" value. This guide provides a quick conversion table to make the process of setting a scale easier. It is based on a default thumbnail setting of 220px (size is default multiplied by upright value then rounded to nearest 10).

"px" setting image_upright=
170 0.75
