I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!

Most of your newly uploaded svgs contain raster elements. In cases like file:Quznetsov RecorderAsClock.svg this strikes me as particularly unnecessary. Cheers--Cwbm (commons) (talk) 12:33, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Delete them then if it is such a bother to you. I am no expert in SVG and if something gets in that you do not like I may be unable to discover or isolate the element you would prefer not to see. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 17:53, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

I don't want to delete them. It is just a shame that they contain raster graphics which makes them of inferior quality. It would just be nice if your svg contain raster elements to mark them with {{BadSVG}} --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 18:03, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

You seem to be the one that is somehow noticing raster elements, so please mark them as bad SVGs if it makes you happier. I frequently make sketches to use in arguing with physics contributors who need to have something visualized for them. I guess I should remember to delete (if that is possible) images that are only for the sake of argument. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 19:32, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
You can easily recognize raster elements when you look at the source code of the file. Which makes me wander what program you use and how are you composing the files? You must be noticing when you add a raster elment to a svg if you use a regular svg editor. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 21:42, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
I discovered, after seeing your messages, that I can open svg files with one of my specialized text editors. For SVG I use Inkscape, which has problems with some things that I use often--arrows with heads frequently don't work right, for one thing.Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 01:07, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

I replaced all the raster elemants in file:Intensity schematic.svg. Maybe you wanna have a look. Cheers --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 22:26, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. I remember making that image. For some reason the globs falling into the bucket would not behave properly. I'm glad you could make the SVG features work for you.Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 05:12, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Photo usage[edit]

Hi, I've been working on a small game built around animal quizzes and I wanted to let you know I've used some of your pictures.

I found your pictures here: I attributed this picture as described on that website: Patrick Edwin Moran with this link: and also added a link to the license: I attributed this picture as described on that website: Patrick Edwin Moran with this link: and also added a link to the license:

I hope you're happy with it, please let me know if this is not the case. You can find the game here: Or through here:

Kind regards, Garfunkel Jansen (talk) 09:24, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

P.S. Thanks for taking the pictures and making them available.

Hello Patrick,
ACC: I encourage you to copy-engineer the page File:且-oracle.svg, especially :
  • The common template used {{ACClicense}}
  • The smoother shape (in inkscape, use [Ctrl+L])
Spider: Last and not relate, I shooted a spider (see user:yug, believed to be Hogna Radiata) very very similar to your File:Hogna_carolinensis_immature_male_02_PEM.jpg. If you are more expert than me (quite amateur), please tell me. In any case, I think one of us made an identification mistake, but can't say who. Cheer, Yug (talk)
I answered back on my page. Please, try to make answers as short as possible as well as well segmented. See my talk page, cheer ! Yug (talk) 15:50, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

There are some incompatibilities between Inkscape and the software on this site when it comes to diagonal arrowheads; it would probably be easier to resolve them to ordinary vector data, instead of using special "marker" code... AnonMoos (talk) 03:14, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Please don't take things too gravely -- useful images will hardly be deleted over arrowhead orientation problems! In any case, despite possessing a number of quirks and idiosyncrasies, Inkscape is apparently one of the better SVG editors out there (though there may be better general vector editing programs). I was actually offering converting to basic vector paths as an easier alternative fix than tussling with RSVG-Inkscape "marker" incompatibilities, but I can't give direct advice on how to do it, because I only use Inkscape for testing and converting SVGs (not actually for editing SVGs).

I do not know how to contact the author of wiki images, nor how to use these user pages, so please forgive any transgressions I have made.

Your excellent svg image of the w:Delayed choice quantum eraser experiment setup would be improved by rotating "Beam Splitter C" clockwise by some 20 degrees or so; that way it would be more obvious to the eye that the half-mirror actually combines the "red" and "blue" beams into two "mixed red/blue" beams.

Thanks for the great images, and cheers, --Bass

Done. Thanks for the suggestion and kind words. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 14:52, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
