This documentation is transcluded from Template:Derived from/doc.

If your file is a derivative work of another file on Commons, use this template to link it.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Derivative versions


{{Derived from |1= }}

A namespace prefix (like "File:") does not disturb.


{{ Derived fromExample.jpgby = {{u|example|'''original''' author}} }} gives
This file was derived from:  Example.jpg by original author

{{ Derived fromExample.jpgBeispiel.pngdisplay = 16 }} gives
This file was derived from:

{{ Derived fromExample.jpgBeispiel.pngSample.svgdisplay = 16opt = l }} ("l" for "left") gives
This file was derived from:
Example.jpg Example.jpg
Beispiel.png Beispiel.png
Sample.svg Sample.svg

You can add up to 40 images. (Capability for more can easily be added in the template code)

This template complements {{Derivative versions}}.

The counterpart:

For mere conversions to SVG:

  • {{AutVec}} - ("authors of vectorized raster graphic")

by User

The file specified with parameter 1, or each file specified with parameters 1 to n, can also be linked with the name of its author.
A value given with the parameter "by=" will be assigned to each file which does not have an individual author assignment with byn.
An individual author assignment can either specify an author, or with no value byn= that no "by" should exist for that file n.
The 'global' parameter "by=user" is for all files that neither get an own author name byn=user, nor are excluded byn=.


The template finishes its display with a new line; when the template is used just to display the text, like
{{ Derived from }} - This file was derived from: which will not be appropriate if continuation in the same line is required; the new line can be avoided by using a colon instead of the missing user name, e.g.
{{ Derived fromby = : }}{{ FExample.svg }}{{ Byexample }}<br> - This file was derived from:Example.svg by example
without inbetween spaces; a final new line can be forced manually, as shown, or by passing "br" as a second parameter to {{By}}.
