What is a Derivative

  • Updated

A derivative is a changed version of your original asset tailored to specific requirements, like different file formats or resolutions. Derivatives can be implemented on external websites and systems. Using smaller versions instead of high-quality files makes your images load faster and will improve the end-user experience. For instance, if you have a high-resolution image that needs to be lower resolution for web use, you can make a derivative with reduced dimensions. You can automatically create these derivatives or manually upload a derivative, making it simple for users to access and share the right versions of their assets. Learn more here.

Dynamic Asset Transformations (DAT) give you even more flexibility. Instead of setting up predefined derivatives, you can create asset transformations on the fly. Contact your Customer Success Manager to enable DAT and learn about associated costs.
