Request from the en:Wikipedia:Graphic Lab/Maps. -- - lyhana8 [[User
Ok, I've updated the SVG file with some more coasts and the xmlns tag. The file renders fine on Commons now and seem to work as a 250px thumb as well, so thanks for the tip. I'll be working with Scandinavia now. So if you don't hear from me during a few days, don't think I'm dead, I'm probably just having nightmares about Norway.

Transparent compass card[edit]

Compass Card transparent.png Compass Card transparent.png Compass Card transparent.png Compass Card transparent.png

Request: I made Image:Compass Card.png transparent to use it as an overlay on maps, but doing it to the whole image kills readability depending on the background colour. Is there something that could be done to the image, maybe apply transparency to some areas only, or surround dark colours with white or something? Para 20:15, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

A good solution may be to use a white disk in background, and to merge your compass on this white background disk. Yug (talk) 23:36, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
But if I put a white disk in the background, even a transparent one, then the it will be less transparent generally. Anyway, thanks for the idea! I did something else instead: I copied the whole image on another layer, deleted everything but the text and their backgrounds, and made them just a bit transparent. I think they're pretty readable now and can't think of any more that could be done to make it better. It actually looks horrible here on the wiki, but if you try it with Google Earth using the kml at Commons:Geocoding#Parameters, it's much better. Too bad I can't include a screenshot. --Para 16:46, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: I came up with that. Perhaps I should add the names of the cities? --Ogre 19:03, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

It looks good, but a bit too big heightwise (I must've made a mistake in my calculations) - labelling the cities would be nice too. Sceptre 19:17, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
OK, I have reduced the size and added the names of the cities, as far as I could tell from google maps! :-)
The cities W-E are supposed to be Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Hull :) I'll see if I can fix it in a text editor. Sceptre 21:33, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Music map of the United States[edit]

Red x.svg StaleMarmBot 20:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
  • A long time ago, I created a map (see it at Image:USmusicmap.png), a rudimentary attempt at creating something greater, primarily for en:Music of the United States. I think someone who actually had some experience with image-manipulation, even if not map-making specifically, could make a great map. I could provide all the information necessary to make something very detailed (which I know would be less useful for a Wikipedia article, since you'd have to zoom in to see anything, but would still be interesting to look at, and could even make for a dorm room poster) with symbols showing everything from cities with notable blues scenes to the home of acclaimed symphony orchestras. If possible, maps showing a subset of this information could be used for articles like en:Latin music in the United States. Is anybody willing to do the image work if I do the research work?

Graphist opinion:

  • Is there a reason why some of the municipalities are partially transparent (e.g. Hjelmeland and Luster). /Lokal_Profil 01:34, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
Should do the trick, removed the transparency from several sections, recoloured, removed the black outlining from the central map (makes it a bit more consistent) and removed the dead space from the image. Thoughts? James.mcd.nz 19:50, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Looks good but two of the municipalities in the rightmost part of the map are missing gradients. Might be other smaller ones missing it too. /Lokal_Profil 16:47, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Article(s): Spanish language Wikiquote main page and templates

Request: Wikipedia in Spanish uses a local version of the Wikipedia logo in some templates (a puzzle piece with a Ñ letter on it). It's a expressive logo which combines the meaning of Wikipedia and Spanish language. A similar logo or symbol might be useful for Wikiquote (a wikiquote logo with a capital or lowercase ñ. Or maybe the whole circle might be replaced with a bold ñ. --Javier ME 16:15, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Of course, I'm not asking you to alter the Wikiquote logo for all languages, just to create a new image for local use. By the way, the Wikipedia symbol might be converted to svg --Javier ME 16:17, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Translation German-->English[edit]

Image:Muskel-molekular.png This image is used on en.wp, but has German text. Could the text be translated and replaced. The image is used on w:Muscle contraction. – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 14:43, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Have converted the whole image into Vector form and translated ~50% of the text to English, but it really needs either a German speaker, or someone who knows alot about the molecular mechanics they refer to in the image to edit the text into something more coherent. Main areas needing work are in Red. Open to ideas.James.mcd.nz 21:34, 16 December 2007 (UTC) Just noticed the problem with the font expanding, will fix it soon.James.mcd.nz 13:14, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Mind that three of the 'links' are dotted. There is a good reason for this. ;) -- Cat ちぃ? 22:07, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Opinion: Are they actually stars, or fictional names?, if they are actually stars, I think you MAY have a point, but if it is a fictional 'galaxy' then I'd say the rights are pretty solidly with the original artist/company who produced the game, it's just another peice of artwork.James.mcd.nz 12:22, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

These star systems are real. You can search for them on wikipedia for example. -- Cat ちぃ? 14:58, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Thats my shot. The background is just a plain colour as the patterning on the original isn't really practical for SVG. Otherwise its all there, let me know what you think. James.mcd.nz 18:38, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

The logo in the bottom right corner should probably go since it's trademearked/copyrighted and the text just above it could be moved to the image description page to make the image language neutral but apart form that it looks good. /Lokal_Profil 01:57, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

I like it tho I have 2 issues with it.

District Maps of Turkey[edit]

Red x.svg StaleMarmBot 20:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Article(s): Atlas of Turkey

Request: I'd like a general improvement on province map images. I have improved Image:Hakkari districts.png some time ago which can be used as an example. In the 1 December version text was too small, there were whitespace around the image making its use on articles problematic. Şemdinli was incorrectly labeled as 'Semdinli' (mind the Ş/S difference). Similar problems exist on other such maps which are poorly categorized (yet another problem). -- Cat ちぃ? 22:16, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Graphist opinions:

Umh... sorry, we can do lot, but not that lot. It will probably need that someone interesting in mapping and Turkey come, and then that will be done. The work seems too lot to be done here, by volunteers, not especially interested by Turkey. Yug Yug (talk) 12:14, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

OTRS Ticket svg[edit]

Red x.svg StaleMarmBot 20:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Article(s): N/A

Request: Removal of the Wikimedia Foundation logo. it's presence there may have legal issues as it is making the image unnecessarily unfree. Esthetically it doesn't look too appealing either (no offense to the creator). -- Cat ちぃ? 23:14, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps the ticket image could be in WMF colors instead? Borders could be blue, background green and text red? -- Cat ちぃ? 23:15, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Geni was kind enough to remove the logo. But my color idea stands. :) -- Cat ちぃ? 23:41, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
MM... yes thanks again Geni! :) -- Cat ちぃ? 23:50, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Opinion:

Removing the logo makes the image look better. But I'm not sure abot the new colours. I'd say they make the text less legible. /Lokal_Profil 12:19, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
You hardly can make a legible logo with that versions of green, blue and red. Please consider white as if it was also a WMF colour, so it can be used for letters or background contrasting with the other colours. --Javier ME 11:44, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Is there anything wrong with the current colours (i.e. red, orange, black)? I don't think many people will make the connection between Wikimedia colours and Wikimedia so the question then becomes: why fix something which works? /Lokal_Profil 23:10, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Also, if you're red/green colour blind, the new version will fuck your shit up. Lewis Collard! (talk, contribs, en.wp)
It was a nice thought, but I think the old color scheme made the text stand out better anyway...Vladsinger 23:29, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Using white text in the new version, as stated by Javierme, would be better. Also, users have their monitors calibrated differently, and the dark green background, with the black text will make it especially difficult to see on some monitors, colour blind or not. :). In my opinion white text would be a big improvement. Even on the best calibrated monitor black text on dark background should be a big no-no. GeeAlice 00:00, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Article(s): fr:Sapindaceae and other wikiprojects

Request: I would like to have the background whitened (but all inscriptions kept). Thanks -- B.navez 19:45, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

Wouldn't it be better to move the text (not including the lables) to the image description. That would make the file more usefull in different languages. Actually maybe even the lables should go unless we have text (in the image description) that explains what they are, and even then new lables would probably be clearer. /Lokal_Profil 19:53, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
No, thanks. Original drawing has to be entirely kept, no matter if labels are not really used.--B.navez 20:05, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
OK, I've uploaded a clean (no lables) version for uses elsewhere. To keep any inscription would require a much more refined tool so I don't think I can do that. /Lokal_Profil 20:20, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
Fine, however it's better and useful. If someone is able to make a further version also with the labels, it could givee a good reproduction of the original figure. There is no urge.--B.navez 20:28, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
I worked on this. The labels in my version are all eh, 'good enough' with the exception of the page number(?) in the upper right corner. I considered searching for a similar font right before I stopped working on it. Would a version without that one text chunk suffice? -- carol 15:30, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
I took a stab and added the labels with the closest font I could find. The text is kinda crisp, but it's labeled. I also made a png version, that was much more clear, but the file was huge to keep the same ratio, so I reduced it by half, but the labels are more blurry than the JPG version when viewed at a smaller size. GeeAlice 02:54, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
You might try indexing the image at the original size. I think it is safe to reduce these scans of paintings from millions of colors to 256 colors because of the simplicity of the coloring. I am not certain that will change the softness of the fonts when thumbnailed, but it might! -- carol 14:25, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Something is very wrong with this image: I tried to open the svg in Firefox, and it almost "froze up" my computer, until I closed FF after a couple of minutes (!). During this time FF used 700MB+ of memory, dropping to 200MB every couple of seconds (while ~83MB is normal). I have never seen anything like this...

hm.. just discovered that the text in the original renders completely different in different sizes.. will look into this /Marmelad 22:26, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, If the solution is just to create a new file, well, let's do it in that way but I think this is not a real solution...this is not the only svg file I detected with this problem to show image "above" a undetermined number of px; it would be useful to detect what this things happens. Besides that, your version has some errors but no problem, I will amend it, thano you for your support,--SanchoPanzaXXI 09:24, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
one thing i noticed is that text on path can be problematic when the image is resized. i recommend converting the text to a path before uploading (but perhaps retaining a copy of the original text outside the viewbox for edits) /Marmelad 10:31, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
it seems the problem is with paths linking other paths (rsvg gives floating point errors, but there may be other problems). /Marmelad 11:43, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm also having SVG display issues[edit]

Red x.svg StaleMarmBot 20:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Request: I'm trying to create and SVG file, but can't get it to render properly. The above image is a PNG of what it is supposed to look like. The SVG file is located at Image:North Dakota's Legislative District 30.svg. I created the SVG using Inkscape. I originally created the image from a shapefile using a GIS editor, exported to PNG, and did the editing and coloring in AdobePhotoshop Elements 4.0. I then imported the PNG into Inkscape and converted it to a plain svg file. Based on Help:SVG, I presume the problem has to do with link reference files within Inkscape, but I can't seem to figure out how to remove those from the file before saving it. The xml editor within Inkscape crashes on me when I try to launch it, and editing the file later in a text editor doesn't seem to work. I'm on OS X Leopard, and this is my first attempt at creating SVG files. Any help is greatly appreciated, otherwise I may have to resort to uploading these as PNG files and relying on others to do the conversions for me.Dcmacnut 04:13, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: Im trying to help but Im not an expert myself. Look at your file, it says itself /Users/<obfuscated username here>/Documents/wikipedia/nd030.png missing! so your convertion didn't work (at all, because your file is 1KB size) and you need to redo it properly without embedding any raster file.

Old magazine illustrations[edit]

Article(s):

Request:

This time I'm mostly looking for advice. I have some old (1860s) Harper's magazines. There are a lot of interesting illustrations. See A Peep at Washoe for some examples. I've been doing these as follows:

  1. scan at 300 dpi
  2. convert to grayscale
  3. use GIMP to threshold it to straight B&W
  4. use GIMP to clean up some stray pixels from imperfections in my copier or in the nearly 150-year-old paper

I assume that the third step is the most controversial; I need to do something, though, to deal with image bleed through the page.

Do people think I've come up with an acceptable approach? Does someone have a better idea? - Jmabel | talk 04:08, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

Have you tried scanning the image with a black piece of paper on the other side. This should reduce "bleed thorugh" of text. /Lokal_Profil 00:16, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

No, but that's the least of the problems: it's pretty easy to get rid of the bleed.
What I've tried doing since I last wrote (with a good bit of success) is to posterize with a few more levels, rather than go to pure B&W. I'm pretty happy with what I'm getting out of this now. - Jmabel | talk 23:30, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

✓ Done Pattern in svg-file[edit]

Hylobates distribution map with legend.svg

I uploaded an svg-map which contains three patterned areas. However when rendered by wikipedia/wikimedia (as png?) those areas don't appear as pattern but uniform colour (mix of the two colours of the pattern I believe). Is there a way to display them correctly, i.e., as pattern? Bamse 05:53, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

It's been solved. When cloning rectangles to create a pattern in inkscape I specified an "initial color" which was different from the rectangle's color. That's what caused the trouble. Strangely enough it looked ok in inkscape. Bamse 07:04, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
Inkscape doesn't allow clones to have different colours from their parents. rsvg (and firefox) do however. /Lokal_Profil 10:27, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

✓ Done Black blobs in SVG[edit]

Request: I'd appreciate if somebody could solve the bug in this image. There's a black blob instead of nicely distributed names, as in [2]. I have frequently this bug when editing svg in Inkscape :(. Thanks in advance. PatríciaR msg 13:42, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

Save as 'simple SVG', not 'Inkscape SVG' and use http://validator.w3.org/. The principle code issues are at the end of the markup.

Here is an empty, valid template:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd">
<svg 
        version="1.1" 
        xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" 
        xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
        <desc></desc>
</svg>

In general, you're going to want to clean up any SVG from Inkscape either manually/by hand (in a text editor), or at least using some 3rd party cleaning script.

Personally, however, I wouldn't bother to try and improve this image, since the paths seem to be generated from a poor trace (there aren't really any good traces). It would not be difficult to recreate this image with just circles and lines from the center, and of course the text, which is trivial.

¦ Reisio 04:22, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice! Yes it's really poor tracing, I've tried to figure out whether Inkscape can do it better or not, but I'll lose less time if I just do it from scratch. PatríciaR msg 10:24, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
I've also struggled black blob syndrome. Fortunately w:en:User:Kjoonlee taught me the way to solve this problem. I copy that way [3] here with little modification.
  1. Download svg file & open it by Inkscape
  2. Press "F1" key for Selection tool
  3. Click on text object (select it)
  4. Press "F8" key for text tool.
  5. See blue box. The blue box is for flowed text. Inkscape's flowed text is not supported in SVG 1.1 viewers or at Wikipedia/Commons.
  6. Press F1 key again.
  7. Shift-click on other text-object to select both.
  8. Go into ”テキスト"(text) menu. Click on "テキストに変換"(convert into text, or Change to text or so in English)
  9. Save

Article(s):w:Flag of Ireland

Request: Trounce 15:39, 3 July 2007 (UTC) The precise colors of the Irish flag are defined as Pantone 347 and Pantone 151 (and white). Does any body have an objective, accurate and "standardized" way to extrapolate the RGB, Hex and CMYK values from the given Pantone colors? Or maybe wiki commons has a policy on extrapolating colors from Pantone colors? (if not maybe we should!) There is a discussion on the Talk page of the article here.

Or embed the fonts directly in the SVG. All you have to do is in Inkscape, go to Edit > XML Editor and individually select the text objects in the left pane , then in the right pane go to each one's style attribute and add to it ;font-family:Bitstream Vera Sans (with the semiclon at the front, it is to separate arguments in an attribute) or exchange Bitstream Vera Sans for whichever font you want.

✓ Done Arrowheads in SVG renders wrong on wiki.[edit]

Breeding scheme for producing knockout mice. Blastocysts containing cells, that are both wildtype and knockout cells, are injected into the uterus of a foster mother. This produces offspring that are either wildtype and colored the same color as the blastocyst donor (grey) or chimera (mixed) and partially knocked out. The chimera mice are crossed with a normal wildtype mouse(grey). This produces offspring that are either white and heterozygous for the knocked out gene or grey and wildtype. White heterozygous mice can subsequently be crossed to produce mice that are homozygous for the knocked out gene.

The arrowheads looks wrong, when I upload it to commons. In Inkscape it looks fine. Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong here. Kjaergaard 13:29, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

✓ Done Help requested from someone good at stitching panoramas[edit]

Inside the Georgetown PowerPlant Museum, Seattle, Washington, USA, four panning top to bottom along one of the vertical boilers at the plant.

Stitched in Hugin 0.7 beta 4, panorama projection, rotated slightly and cropped in GIMP.
Stichted in Autostitch corrected with Irfan View

I assume that a pretty good panoramic image could be made from these, but I really don't have the techology to do it well in any reasonable amount of time. I'm guessing someone else would do a better job: help sought. - Jmabel | talk 05:37, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

I can give it a try. No guarantees, depends much upon if you have managed to keep the nodal point fixed...-- Slaunger 11:44, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
OK, here is an example. The stitch itself is pretty good. If you have the possibility to retake the scenary some other time I suggest adding more overlap and having more spare space at the image borders. After stitching, the resulting panorama is not rectangular, and I had to crop of some of the subject to avoid blank space. I addition, I think a equirectangular projection would have been better (to make straight vertical and horizontal lines). I tried that but realized I'd have to crop even more. This panoramic projection seemed like a reasonable compromise.
I have not categorized the photo properly to relevant subjects (feeling lazy). I trust you will do that? -- Slaunger 12:21, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. Nice job. I'm afraid there is really no way to get more space at the image borders, unless with a wide-angle lens: this is as far back from it as one can get, and this was with no zoom. -- Jmabel | talk 09:11, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

You could have photos side-by-side. For instance a 4x2 matrix of photos. This can easily be stitched in Hugin as well. -- Slaunger 09:13, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

The Coat of Arms inside the flag doesn't come from the image you mentioned, but it is a vectorization of the flag from http://www.vector-images.com that i did using a software called VectorEye3 that i downloaded from http://www.siame.com/ so i don't think that it is in danger of problematic copyight/source status. Oren neu dag 10:06, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
I've Rebuilt the flag and it is fine now. Oren neu dag 15:41, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: Could try to fix it but I'm suspecting that the Coat of arms in the flag comes from Image:Bandera de Andalucía.png which has a problematic copyight/source status. If that image is deleted then this one would have to go as well unless the Coat of Arms is redesigned from scratch... which is a bit to much work for me, right now at least. /Lokal_Profil 00:49, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

✓ Done Image:Glyn Ceiriog.jpg[edit]

Article(s): English - Glyn Ceiriog, Welsh - Glyn Ceiriog

Request: This image was produced directly onto CD at the developing lab from a 35mm film camera, and the results could be improved. There is a horizontal line running across the photo about half-way up (possibly a scratch on the negative), and there is a small white blob in the top right part of the sky. Finally the generally quality is somewhat grainy. Is it possible that an expert with Photo-shop or similar could clean this up please?  – Tivedshambo (talk) 15:57, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: I've Gaussian blurred the image to get rid of some of the noise and painted out the white line and blobs. I hope that helps! Time3000 16:03, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Great improvement! Many thanks. – Tivedshambo (talk) 19:29, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

  • Removing it is no trouble. But was ther supposed to be some other text there? The code suggests that ther might have been a "θθ" there. I'll remove the box for now. /Lokal_Profil 23:43, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Article(s): w:en:Brasília w:pt:Juscelino Kubitschek and w:pt:Memorial JK It is used in very few articles so I do not know if it worth the effort.But it keeps bottering me anyway .

Request: I think the image is in need of perspective correction, it is overexposed and it has a finger at the right corner. -- Jota 20:59, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: Corrected perspective cropped and removed finger, view now level with the horizon. Improved exposure, not significantly as changing too vastly degraded the quality. Hope this helps ;)

Request: This image of Jennifer seems "flat" especially compared to the earlier used Image:JenniferLoveHewitt.jpg, which unfortunately is a rather poor composition.

Any takers? -- TheDJ 13:07, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: Image was underexposed making it look flat/washed out and black levels not high enough.

✓ Done SVG cleanup needed[edit]

Request: Could someone clean code of the picture?-- QWerk 19:02, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

Size halfed by vacuuming unused definitions. More improvements could probably be done by cloning parts of the image (one of the eagle wings/legs, all the stars etc. but that (unlike the vacuuming) would require actuall work, 784kB isn't that bad. /Lokal_Profil 19:55, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
I tried searching online to read about cloning, but I couldn't find. Can you please explain this to me, how it works? I don't know about svg that much, but would love to. Thanks. --Jak 00:14, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Cloning basically means that you take an object (or a group of objects) and make a copy of it. This copy will not contain the actual code but will just point to the original (hence the smaller file size). Thus if you do any changes to the original these will happen with the clone as well. The downside is that you are limited in how you can manipulate the clone, i.e. you can resize it, rotate it and twist it but you can't change it's colour or redraw any of the objects. The best way to figure out how it works is probably by looking how a image such as Image:Flag of Europe.svg is done. However for this particular image I'm not sure it's really worth it. Found a tutorial on [5] on cloning in inkscape which might be usefull. /Lokal_Profil 01:01, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the info... Out of curiosity, I started working on this image to see how much size reduction can be made. Still working on it, If I ever finish it, I will post it here... Thanks again. --Jak 13:28, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

Did a version, feel free to change around the colours. All of the objects with "other land" colours have been grouped together so that you only need to change colour in one place. And yes the pink doesn't go well with the surrounding colours but I figured you were mainly looking for the tecnical solution./Lokal_Profil 13:25, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

Coat of arms of the Government of Gibraltar.svg here it is, hope you like it. Some remarks: After some heraldist recommendations, reflects and shadows are avoided to keep the purity of the traditional heraldic colors. The only exception I introduced is the blue-sky, not use in Europe but in overseas. Also notice than due to copyright, this is a "wiki" flavoured version of an official insignia, thus accurate reproduction is not recommended.

Graphist opinion:

Ayelie's attempt
The other version
  • I created the image at the right, I'm not sure if it's what you were looking for. To "Nuvola-flair" the star of life icon I merely added a gradient shape to the top and a shadow behind - it isn't perfect but hopefully it's close enough ;) If someone else comes up with something better feel free to upload over top of my version.

According to that license, a GIF version of the vector graphic from that website is allowed on Wikipedia. I think creating an SVG version violates the copyright. Maybe somebody else can look into this as well.↔NMajdantalk 17:57, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
Can a Coat of Arms of a country be copyrighted? It can always be said that it was based off of any of these images, as it would be true. -Indolences 18:13, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
Yes and no. The idea or blazon behind the image cannot be copyrighted but a particular artist's version of the insignia can be. Wikipedia practice seems to be that as long as it is not a direct duplicate of a copyrighted version, we'll be fine. Valentinian T / C 23:35, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
Okay so I should make it look more like this? As it is on the government website I would think it would not be "copyrighted". -Indolences 05:45, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
This looks like a good version to base a new image on. From a heraldic perspective, I'd say that the idea about claiming copyright for an official coat of arms image or flag is meaningless, since these images are owned and used by nations. The U.S. flag was designed by somebody, but nobody considers this image off-limits to Wikipedia, no matter that the first person to add the 50th star can't have been dead for 70 years. Unfortunately, U.S. laws weren't designed to take this situation into account. The legal situation behind such images is very tricky and I'd be surprised if traditional encyclopedias didn't simply use such images without consulting others first. But if you create your own image inspired by another image, there'll be no problems at all. If anybody is game for it, a new .svg version of the coat of arms of Denmark would also be very welcome. I'm not the biggest fan of the current .svg version and a better one would be much appreciated. Valentinian T / C 12:27, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Request : Trying to get rid of car in front of Buckingham Palace[edit]

Article(s):

Request: I'd like to get rid of the Mercedes car but leave the London cab's in the background. I tried the "Stamp Tool" in PhotoFiltre already but I'm not happy with the results so far. As a source I copied the picture and flipped it along the vertical axis. Then I patched the tarmac from the flipped over copy back into the original picture. It turned out quite tricky to "replace" the missing parts of the last cab on the right hand side and to complete the lamp posts, which are covered by the Merc on the original picture. Ideally also the silver car parked in front the cabs would go. If someone knows how, I'd be grateful for any hints on basic techniques or especially for PhotoFiltre.

Graphist opinion: I don't know about PhotoFiltre, but you need to use some kind of smoothing to blur the obviously edited areas so there are no sharp edges. Also, I guess the pavement comes out as far as the lamp post, and is inset for the taxi rank. For a realistic shop though, you'd really need to know what's missing so you can draw it back in. Another or two would help see what's behind that car, see if you can find some more angles via google earth Bitplane 09:33, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm new to the whole posting on wikimedia, so if anyone can get the image into its rightful place on the w:Primary auditory cortex page please do, hopefully I'll be able to get it to work with a few more attempts (time to do some reading!)

Cleaned up the code and moved the legends to the image description page. /Lokal_Profil 16:58, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Request: I'd like the picture to be horizontal. -- Simon Shek 10:01, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

I'm guessing you meant you wanted the image straightened horizontally. James.mcd.nz 17:25, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
New version looks good. Unless the original uploader minds you should probably upload the new image over the old one. Also the licensing of the new one is wrong but I assume thats due to copy pasting =). /Lokal_Profil 02:00, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

SVG will not display[edit]

Request: This image will not display in the medium view, though it will display inside article and full. Any help? -- Knulclunk 02:48, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: open your file with an editor like notepad++ (on windows) and look at his end: you will see a string like: <i:pgf id="adobe_illustrator_pgf"> <![CDATA[ eJzsvXuTHMeRJ/g/zfgd6v4YM2lv1chHZGak7mzNqh/Qco0SZSS1q72xNVoTaJLY6Qe3AYyW9+nP etc. this is an embeded raster file! You need to make a proper conversion without including it. Morgoth666 09:46, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Reptile plate[edit]

Request: I scanned and uploaded this illustration from an old encyclopedia. It is almost 5MB; I also uploaded some less compressed versions previously (see page history). Please could you comment on it? What should I have done better, and what could still be done to improve it? Unfortunately it is blurred at the left edge as it is still bound in the book and would not lie flat on the scanner. Could anything be done about that? Strobilomyces 20:15, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: 9,604 × 13,600 pixels is a generous size for an image -- as this image contains so much information, I suggest that the best way to 'improve it' is to know that you have uploaded a very generous image (both in pixel size and the information it contains) to the commons so that others can have access to it -- or in other words, relax and don't worry about the warning. -- carol 23:40, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

It's especially true for a image like this where other users might want to extract parts and upload as separate images. Tagged the image wiht {{Extract image}}. /Lokal_Profil 00:25, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
