Coat of Arms from .png to .svg[edit]

Request
Hi! I would be very grateful if someone could turn this image from the current .png to a scalable .svg. It doesn't need to have the shiney bits, if this causes too much trouble to anyone. Although this image would only be for an article in the Spanish Wiki, I intend to start just now one in the English Wiki as well. --Cantabrucu (talk) 13:01, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Figures and Diagrams for the UK Traffic Signs Manual.[edit]

Category:Traffic Signs Manual (UK) (Chapter 3)

Article(s)
s:Traffic_Signs_Manual
s:Index:UK Traffic Signs Manual - Chapter 3 Regulatory Signs. 2008 (Second Impression 2008).pdf
Request
This is a big ask, and may need it's own Wikiproject, Thanks to a request I put into the Department of Transport I was able to get a set of EPS files, being the figures in the Traffic Signs Manual. These are very slowly being uploaded to the category mentioned. However, the EPS->SVG conversion isn't perfect, and some rendering fixes had to be applied, which is why it is taking time to get the full set uploaded.
I am in need of some more experienced graphists famiar with EPS and SVG to help review and quality control the files uploaded so far.
Some problems I've personally identified so far are :
  • Border elements that have been recombined from single EPS path elements.
  • Unclosed paths.
  • Font substitutions (for Commmons/Wikisource rendering issues.)
There is only so much a single volunteer can do, and I would appreciate this being a community effort.
Update - Having to restart owing to some font rendering issues.ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 00:39, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

There's some [information at the manufacturer's information page]. Reading between the lines of the request, it sounds like the pictures on this page would be re-created for Commons.

Logo for the project Connected Open Heritage[edit]

A looped square (Swedish place of interest sign) inside a ring using the classical Wikimedia logo style. --Shandris
Context
Wikimedia Sverige's project Connected Open Heritage (COH) aims to bring cultural heritage data onto Wikidata, and images of cultural heritage onto Wikimedia Commons. We especially focus on cultural heritage that is at risk globally. The logo will be used in brochures, on roll-ups, on templates on Commons and on project pages on different wikis. Read more about the project.
Request
Create a visually pleasing representation of the project name Connected Open Heritage with a CC0 license so that it easily can be used to promote the project. Preferably in svg so that it easily can be scaled for various use. (We do not mind getting alternatives from different wikigraphists to choose from.) --John Andersson (WMSE) (talk) 14:22, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

I have now submitted four logo ideas above. Hope there is something you can use. If you want any alternative versions or changes dont heitate to contact me. AlphaZeta (talk) 22:01, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
@John Andersson (WMSE): I've submitted an idea as well. What are your thoughts? --Shandris (talk) 21:56, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi! Sorry for the extremely late reply. I was sure that I had written here already! These are some lovely logotypes both of you have created! With so many great possibilities I would love to take the opportunities to organize a open vote for all interested to have a say. I will look at that in a week or so when some reports I am working on are finalized. If anyone feel inspired, please add your suggestion as well. Again, thank you both!

Update Western Australia population growth graph[edit]

Article(s): en:Western Australia, en:History of Western Australia

Request
The graph could use an update (data here), but even more so it needs a re-scaling: populations grow exponentially, which means the vertical axis needs a logarithmic scale. --Bender235 (talk) 20:55, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Taxonomic map of fungi with ploidy data[edit]

Article(s): en:Polyploidy

Request
The English Wikipedia currently uses two non free files en:File:Polyploidy in fungi2.pdf and en:File:Polyploidy in fungi.pdf to illustrate the ploidy of fungi of different taxa. I wonder if it's possible to create diagrams with the same information that are free images so that we can use these instead.--Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 11:12, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

--Markov (talk) 23:07, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Hi @Markov, unfortunately the terms in French are too long in number of letters as well in terms of typesetting. That would be not different in German, but I omitted to the words „epoch“ and „era“ in my translation. If that is just as acceptable to the French version, I would be glad to provide the appropriate edit. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 14:13, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi, MagentaGreen, really nice work for the german version ! Is it possible, in french, to :
  • keep "ÈRE "
  • omit "PÉRIODE DU " or "PÉRIODE DE L'"
  • keep "Époque " ?
In German, you wrote NEOGEN instead of KARBON (on -359 line), should omit -318, and you forgot Paläozän and Eozän (on the right)
Regards, --Markov (talk) 15:11, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

I don’t know what happened. After adding the Chinese labels, the final picture looks fine in Inkscape. However, The uploaded display shows white lines at left half of the picture --老陳 (talk) 23:51, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
That is very bad because this is a new bug from the last SVG-render update. All image version of this are affected. This needs to be reported on Phab. User: Perhelion 07:50, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
I suggest to make all files in one multi-language with the fix. @Menner: I raised only the coords of the radialGradient to fix, very strange (PS @Menner: I found also another new bug with mask and clones on other file, please don't purge :P). User: Perhelion 09:28, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
In fact it has nothing direct to do with Inkscape, I opened a bug-report. User: Perhelion 10:23, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Looks very nice now. Thanks!--老陳 (talk) 22:13, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Tuscany barnstar[edit]

Article(s): personal and users talk pages

Request
We are reorganizing the network of users living in (or interested in) Tuscany on different platforms and it would be nice to have one barnstar because some of them did a great work so far. Nothing elaborate, and if I may without the modern pegasus flag which is IMHO "lame", but as you like to do assemble it. I am also not a fan of a specific monument like the duomo of Florence or the tower in Pisa as an image, but again that's just my opinion. No hurry, of course, that's just something nice to have soon or later. I am just not good in designing barn stars. Thanks in advance.--Alexmar983 (talk) 15:53, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
