Hi - thanks you very much for the excelent renderings! It would be even better if you would place them in categories or on gallery pages, so they can be found by others. Thanks for contributing! -- Duesentrieb 23:37, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)

sorry for being a little rash - i'm trying to keep uncategorized images to a minimum here, so i have an eye on the new images that are uploaded (we habe about 8000 uncategorized images on the commons right now - a list will be up in a couple of days). You have places most of your images in a category (thanks for that!), but you seem to have missed Image:Jack plug.png - that's the one i noticed. Yust put it somewhere like Category:Hi-Fi equipment - thaks again for those great pictures, great work! -- Duesentrieb 23:59, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Whoops - you got me there; I hadn't put a category link on that one. But now it's done. And besides: Thanks for the flattering comments on by contributions! :-)


I like your diagrams! I have already done my own renditions of a lot of the same circuits, which you can view here: en:User:Omegatron/Gallery But I like yours better. Maybe you could show me how to make them? - Omegatron 14:53, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Hi Omegatron. I'm Peo from Commons (User:Peo) and the danish Wikipedia (da:Bruger:Peo). I have posted a number of self-made diagrams at Commons, and on my talk page there, you asked about how I create these.
As I've stated on the info page for most, if not all, of my diagrams, I draw them using the "AutoShape" drawing tools in Microsoft Word 97. Similar features exists in both earlier and later versions of that application, and at my personal website there is a tutorial on using AutoShapes.
Word cannot export the drawings as a raster ("bitmap") image, so what I do is to "zoom" to the full 500% in Word, and take a screenshot. Anything beyond trivial tiny circuits takes several screenshots, which are then "stitched together" in a graphincs package.
Sounds cumbersome? Well, it is - but the results seem worth the efford imho. — Peo
So I was thinking. I use this web app to make my diagrams: Klunky schematic editor You basically just click on images and then tile them together into a circuit. The original is public domain, and I have modified it to add some extra components, etc: My version
I mostly like it, but it still needs some work. I would like if it could output html, for posting modular schematics on websites, and I would really like it if it had prettier symbols. I don't know where to get help for the javascript, but maybe you could help me redraw all the symbols? Then it wouldn't be so "cumbersome" for you to make images with your symbols. (We can make the tiles larger, of course.)
The downsides would be:
  • It is a lot of work to redraw each component, but it only needs to be done once.
  • We would be limited to only drawing schematics that fit into this block-to-block arrangement. I imagine working with autoshapes is much more configurable for drawing special situations.
  • It doesn't really do labels well, and I always end up modifying the schematic a little bit in an image editor to add labels, squish components closer together, reshape into a more conventional layout, etc. But it's not too much work.
The absolute best solution would be if someone came up with a really nice electronics drawing program and we wouldn't need to do any of this.  :-) Like if Dia got their act together or if there were custom electronics component shapes for SVG editors that you just click and drag into a circuit.
So I don't know. It's just a conjecture. What do you think? - Omegatron 9 July 2005 18:39 (UTC)

Blank (black) image[edit]

The image at Image:OpAmp Diagrams and Pinout.png is blank. Alan Liefting 10:05, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for the late response to this issue, but now I've fixed it. Seems like it looked just fine in the [danish article on op-amps] when I wrote it and added this image. — Peo 15:03, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
It still looks black to me. - Omegatron 00:09, 23 May 2005 (UTC)
I see only black (scaled and original). Please try to load and save this in a different image program. thanks... -- Duesentrieb 00:26, 23 May 2005 (UTC)
How about now? As I write this, I have a working, full-size version of the image in another window, a thumbnail versionin a third window, and the danish article in a fourth...! :-)
Peo 12:05, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Now I get it! The image is still black as seen under the name image:OpAmp_Diagrams_and_Pinout.png, but it works under the name image:Opamp_diagrams_and_pinout.png - note the differences in capitalization. I'm not quite sure about what's going on, but the "name game" seems to solve the problem... — Peo 12:31, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I marked the bad version for deletion. - Omegatron 9 July 2005 18:45 (UTC)

Excelent work[edit]

Wow, really excelent work, I only wish someone could make such great stuff for the mechanical parts of Videorecorders.

Image:Prisms with high and low dispersion.png[edit]

Can you give license to this file? --Derbeth 20:42, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Done...! :-) — Peo 11:51, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

CRT image[edit]

Your otherwise excellent image of a CRT tube is nominated for Featured Picture on the en wiki, here, but I see a problem, the phosphor dots should be round, not hexagonal, and also surrounded by black. Can you do something about it? Greetings, --Janke | Talk 16:37, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

On a related note, I've somewhat taken responsibility for getting that image featured on en ;) If you want to stay up to date on what's happening with it, see Image:CRT color enhanced.png, which is a "fork" of your image incorporating all comments raised on the FPC. --grmwnr (homewiki) 10:20, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Image:Two-Slit Diffraction.png[edit]

The license is missing, please add a proper license. --Denniss 00:45, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Done...! :-) — Peo 22:58, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Jack plug image[edit]

Hello, your image Image:Jack plug.png, has been selected as a featured picture on the English language Wikipedia. Congratulations and thank you for your contribution! --KFP 22:53, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

File:Moving coil instrument principle.png[edit]

The end positions of the coil in your image are not correct: the fully deflected pos. is not outside the air gap - the coil does never leave the air gap of the field magnet. The rest position is not the mid of the air gap - it is the beginning. The coil moves through the wohle air gap segment.--Ulfbastel (talk) 16:45, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Hall Effect[edit]

Am I the first one (after 5 years) to notice that your image of the Hall Effect [1] is wrong? :-) The electrons in the large image should be driven "down". Accordingly in the other images.
