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

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)

s:Index:UK Traffic Signs Manual - Chapter 3 Regulatory Signs. 2008 (Second Impression 2008).pdf
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.
Cheers, Mliu92 (talk) 14:58, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
✓ Done Made and uploaded a [|new schema] (based on the one present on the official website) to be used for the articles. If you think changes are needed let me know. EDIT: Just realized the file doesn't work as expected. I'll adress that soon. Pablo

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
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.
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)

Traffic Sign image cleanup[edit]

Basic node cleanup and adjacent node merging, Also the figure lower right should probably have a 'flash' band around it the same color as the main panel. --ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:31, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Update Western Australia population growth graph[edit]

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

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

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)

Update SVG of an official seal[edit]

Article(s): All current usage


It would seem this seal was updated in Sept 2015, however local file here has not been changed to match. Is someone here able to update it? --sısɐuuǝɔıʌ∀ (diskuto) 21:08, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

@Avicennasis: I've updated the seal (though some of the cached images for me are taking their time in updating). I think in this case the previous revision needs to be uploaded under a different file name for historical purposes, but I'm not sure what to call the file. I'm not sure if it should be something along the lines of File:Seal of the Philippine House of Representatives-pre-2015.svg or something similar. Offnfopt(talk) 02:56, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

Edit: Looks like I'm not done, just noticed I need to increase the number of stars in the image, let me see what I can do. Offnfopt(talk) 03:01, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
Ok I've also updated the number of stars to 81, so now ✓ Done. Offnfopt(talk) 03:34, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you very much! I've uploaded the prior verison as well at File:Seal of the Philippine House of Representatives-pre-2015.svg. sısɐuuǝɔıʌ∀ (diskuto) 05:44, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
