This documentation is transcluded from Template:InlineImageAnnotations/doc.

This template can be used to restrict the display of image annotations in articles where the image appears. The template can be placed on a file description page to specify how notes on the file should be displayed when the image is used in articles. It does not activate display if notes are switched off for a given group of users or images in the site-wide configuration.


{{InlineImageAnnotations |inline= |thumb= }}
