Template for labelling archival versions of files, when a compressed version exists for the purpose of providing thumbnails. Place in the other_versions= field in the {{Information}} template. Label the compressed version with {{Compressed version}}.

The template automatically sets the following categories: For PNGs, Category:PNGs with JPEG versions (or if the file doesn't exist, Category:PNGs with missing JPEG versions), and, if appropriate, Category:PNG files affected by MediaWiki restrictions. For TIFFs, if appropriate, Category:TIFF files affected by MediaWiki restrictions.
