A village pump

Hello and Welcome to this Graphics village pump of Commons. This Graphics village pump aims to provide help and information about the several Graphic Labs spread in the Wikipedias, and to be the technical support forum for all the local Labs, graphists (graphic artists), and users interested in graphic works, and is a page where graphists and users from all the Labs can talk about graphics, tutorials, graphic software, help to build new Graphic Labs, etc. Also for exchanging opinions, ideas, protocols, and ways of improvement.

File:Jet engine Russian.svg[edit]

May you please help that user fixing the SVG?--Geologiya (talk) 15:44, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

The last version is not an SVG image. It is a reference to one "C:\Documents and Settings\kourakine\Мои документы\Мои рисунки\Jet_engine.gif" which presumedly is a local file of the user. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:58, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
@Geologiya: download File:Jet engine.svg, replace English text with Russian from!Jet_engine_Russian.svg , and upload the resulting SVG file over Jet_engine_Russian.svg. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:08, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

When uploading jpg format imges with embedded EXIF metadata, advise users all metadata is publicly visible[edit]

I uploaded an image file .jpg format and subsequently discovered that the hidden EXIF metadata is publicly visible. I think the "upload file" pages should be changed as follows: 1. On the mobile browser version of wikipedia add a warning that the desktop version of the website must be used to avoid compatibility problems with ipad users regardless of browser 2. Advise users that all EXIF metadata is publicly visible and to use a EXIF metadata editing app to delete information they prefer to not share — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adrian816 (talk • contribs) 21:36, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

  1. a user uploads a file to a public site, and
  2. the user has a median human intellect (or above),
then s/he must understand that all data in the file become publicly visible. @Adrian816: please, do not give such advices. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 03:51, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
@Adrian816: in English Wikipedia, I routinely pressed [rollback] without explanations just seeing anything like this addition. Use talk pages for suggestions since you are definitely not a computer graphics expert. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:55, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

File:M1.png and File:M2.png[edit]

After reverting File:M1.png and File:M2.png to original version, I can still see versions uploaded by User:Kabu0321. Cathy Richards (talk) 21:13, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

If you mean in the file history, that’s normal. If you mean the main thumbnails, they look OK to me; have you tried clearing your browser cache?—Odysseus1479 (talk) 21:49, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
