Your SVG "conversions"[edit]

One of your SVG "conversions", Image:Cross-Fourchee-Heraldry.svg manages to transform a 4,332 byte PNG file (generated by means of a 747 byte PostScript file) into a 201,717 byte SVG file, which actually contains NO VECTOR DATA (as far as I can ascertain), but instead merely includes an EXTREMELY inefficient embedding of the original raster PNG file!!

I have an efficient and compact 1.1k SVG version of this (and also SVG versions of most of the heraldic cross images, as well as some others), which I'll be happy to upload whenever they finally get around to fixing Bug 4388, as discussed on User talk:EugeneZelenko#SVG requests. But meanwhile, you should please slow down on the SVG "conversions" until you're fully aware of what you're doing... AnonMoos 00:59, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Further on SVG bloat[edit]

Image:Lindisfarne StJohn Knot2 3.svg is a great graphic, but I just now uploaded an SVG file which was 86% smaller than your original upload, and still contains exactly the same vector data... AnonMoos 04:28, 26 March 2006 (UTC)


It's OK, no real harm is done, but I don't think the "Please use the SVG version of this graphic whenever possible" templates are justified at this time... AnonMoos 13:31, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
P.S. SVG files are actually text files, so you can open them in a plain-text editor, and check if what the generating program is doing is actually what you want it to be doing... AnonMoos
P.P.S. Were you directly converting the PostScript vector source (as found on the image description pages) to SVG, or were you "tracing" the raster image? I assumed you were using the latter method (due to the embedded PNG of the Cross Fourchy PNG found, and the fact that there was an SVG version of the Cross Bottony image, which doesn't include a PostScript version on its image description page). A raster conversion is guaranteed to be less accurate than a pure PostScript vector -> SVG vector conversion. AnonMoos 13:47, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

MokaCoffeePot svg conversion[edit]

Hi Melian,

I noticed you made a SVG conversion of Image:MokaCoffeePot.jpg. While I sort of understand the purpose of this, the .svg version looks really jagged to my eye. Is it just my monitor's resolution (1280x1024)? If not, I don't really see the point of replacing it with a lower-quality version, especially when no one's going to be scaling it up within an article.
