There are several recipes for picture galleries within PmWiki. For example
ThumbList  can do smaller versions (thumbnails) of bigger pictures and the
markup, corresponding to yours above, for 200 pixels thumb width, would be:
(:thumb "some image name.jpg" align=center width=200
titlefmt="This is the image title!" captionfmt="A caption below":)
Most of the parameters can be set default in config.php and you can actually
(:thumb file.jpg captionfmt="View from Paris":)
