do not modify comments by others[edit]

Hello Gregors, please do not do not modify comments by others as you had done on User_talk:Luxo. They are signed. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 13:10, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

svgs[edit]

Some help regarding your finding that text is sometimes black rectangles (File:Arasement_Joue.svg): The renderer used here does not support flow elements which are inserted by inkscape if you drag a text area. See Help:SVG#Fonts. And best test your svg before uploading here: Commons:SVG Check. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 13:15, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Instructions for adding Vector versions of pixel graphics[edit]

Let's say there is an image named File:ASDFG.jpg.

Make an identical vector version of it.

Upload the new file as File:ASDFG.svg. Use the same license(s) as File:ASDFG.jpg.

Click on "edit" at the top

Change the source to say something like, "Vector image by User:Gregors, derived from ASDFG.jpg"

At the bottom, add the same categories as File:ASDFG.jpg.

Also add an SVG category if appropriate.

Click on "save"

Then go to File:ASDFG.jpg

Click on "edit" at the top

Add

to the text, generally as the last thing above the categories.

If the file has the

Converted to SVG.svg All images in this gallery could be recreated using vector graphics as a SVG file. This has several advantages; see Commons:Media for cleanup for more information. If an SVG form of this image is available, please upload it and afterwards replace this template with {{vector version available|new image name.svg}}.

template, remove it.

Click on "save"

Note that the word "File" is not used in the template -- the template will add it automatically. You may then go to each of the uses of the old file and change the link to the svg, but that is not essential and may be difficult in some WP languages that you can not read.

Uploading it with http://toolserver.org/~luxo/derivativeFX/ and adding

(note the "|" instead of "/") to non-SVG versions is generally sufficient. -- Docu at 05:33, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Very true, but I have found the various special purpose uploaders confusing and difficult on occasion, so I stick to the general purpose one and recommend it for newbies and experienced users. Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 10:36, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi Gregors!

Read your note and instructions above. When I generate the sky plots with Aladin at SIMBAD, I drag the image over to a file and it is copied as a .png. To make it a .svg, is all I have to do is change .png to .svg or change it with an application like Preview (I have an Imac)? I'll try one and see what happens.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Gregors!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Thanks a lot! ok, i will try to lear about this software. No, no, there was not any intention. I've used this files: Flag of Catalonia.svg and Flag of England.svg (as a Cross of Saint George); there are a few more examples here and here. So, red colour shold be the same both sides.

Lee Ranch Wind Speed Frequency svg[edit]

Gregors - thanks for your contribution. "Wind power" at Wikipedia is currently under a large rewrite, and it was noted by another editor that this graph does not have numerical values along the right-side, making it somewhat confusing. I would assume that the values for MWh are the same as those for hours, but it's that assumption that is being questioned. Your input is appreciated.

Lee Ranch Wind Speed Frequency.svg

--E8 (talk) 17:45, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

There are no values on the right because this graph is general and not specific for a given turbine but for the energy available for a given distribution of wind speeds.
