This template is used to configure the articles found in the Selected picture section found on most Wikipedia Portal main pages. Used it on the article pages that are linked to the Selected picture sub-page, e.g. Portal:Foo/Selected picture/1. For the quickest and easiest way to create the Portal:Foo/Selected bar sub-page and related article links, use one of the {{Numbered subpages}} templates.
