SVG images[edit]

As you've noticed, I've updated some SVG flags of countries. For some reason Adobe Illustrator seems to create much larger files than the originals even if the only thing modified was the colours. Is there some way to keep the file size as small as possible in Illustrator or do I need another way of modifying the flags? You seem to have some experience with SVG's, so I'm asking directly. –Vzb83 09:15, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Image:Flag of Esperanto.svg[edit]

Makes sense, and something I just remembered is that larger larger original images result in nicer looking thumbnails. —Philip Nilsson 00:59, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Flag of England[edit]

Image:Flag of England.svg seems to be broken, and you're the last person listed as having edited it. Could you have a look at it and see what has happened? Cantthinkofagoodname 00:57, 17 January 2006 (UTC) (if replying, please do so at en:User:Cantthinkofagoodname. Thanks.

standard redundant
Gabbe, please do not list these in deletion requests. These are standard redundant images and should be treated as such. This one: Image:Asiatic.lioness.bristol.arp.jpg, at least, is in use in many wikipedias. The tag {{redundant}} will be sufficient. Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 16:07, 16 February 2006 (UTC)
Very well, but remember to list things at redundant. It will save you time as well as the editors! Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 20:50, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks ..[edit]

Hej, tack för att du orkar göra det jag inte orkar, dvs fixa mina licenstaggar. Är alla fixade eller bara några? MVH Grillo 19:14, 28 March 2006 (UTC)


Hej! Är det säkert att bilder som Image:Quarnevalen 1965.jpg är PD? Jag undrar lite för att dessa bilder har nog inte publicerats innan Andrew Eick uppladdade dem til Flickr. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 07:12, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Swedish translations needed[edit]

Hi! I contact you as you speak English and Swedish.

Jastrow and I are working on autotranslating {{Meta information museum}}, the meta-template we use for many museums, like {{Information Louvre}}. Could you please help us find Swedish translations for every tag name:

   * artist/maker
   * description
   * dimensions
   * credit line
   * accession number
   * location
   * source/photographer
   * references
   * other versions

"Credit line" is mainly about the mode of acquisition: what collection does it come from? Did it join the collections by gift, purchase, on loan, etc.?

Thanks for any help. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 13:34, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Merci beaucoup :) Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 15:15, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Gabbe!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Copyright Violation of Bertrand_russell.jpg[edit]

I do not see how the image could possibly be a violation of any copyright. --MaxwellBennett 04:58, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
