This template takes two optional arguments: the first is for the name of an image more suitable for general use, and the second is information about the version. Thus:

With both parameters:

{{original|Image:Example.jpg|Scan of page 25 in Example text by John Doe.}}

Without the image name:

{{original||Scan of page 25 in Example text by John Doe.}}

Without either argument:

{{original}}


As the examples above show, this template doesn't recognise parameter 2. Also as # ifexists is considered an expensive parser function call, then it could be rewritten more efficiently:

<noinclude>
This template is for Wikisource, etc. which requires that images appear EXACTLY as they did in the work in question, so updated versions, corrections to errors(!), etc. can be prevented from ruining the original work with this template</noinclude>
