Try saving as -- Plain SVG and not Inkscape SVG, fonts don't render well in the Inkscape version.ClemRutter 10:30, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
- Thanks—I'll bear that in mind for the next time. Apologies for the minor upset I caused on "Oxted Line" on en:wikipedia by substituting my effort for yours—you have loyal fans!--Old Moonraker 12:40, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
To give you a taste of what can be found, here are some interesting faces from Roger Fenton's Crimean War photographs. I like to set the Library of Congress previews to thumbnail format; click and scroll down when you see one you like to find out whether that has a high resolution version.

- Thanks for taking the trouble to let me know what's available—the images certainly repay examination at high resolution. Old Moonraker 10:42, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello Old Moonraker!
Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.
To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.
You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.
The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!
Thank you. 188.8.131.52 13:49, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
Hello, Old Moonraker!
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.
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:
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]]
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.

http://bits.wikimedia.org/skins-1.5/common/images/button_sig.png Hey Old Moonraker! I've created a new version of the six Shakespear signatures. How do I replace the one we have? Tom Reedy (talk) 23:07, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

- I've uploaded the file in two different formats: File:Shakespeare_signatures_labelled.TIF and File:Shakespeare_signatures_labelled.JPG, but I can't make them work on the page. Do you know what I'm doing wrong? Tom Reedy (talk) 15:42, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
Hey, Ol' M-:
The illustration on the Globe Theatre page needs some tweaking:
---The correct title is "Long View of London," not Southwark.
---The illustration is a only sketch for the later, engraved version.
I own a full-size reprint of the final six-sheet panorama. I suppose I could shoot a detail of the Globe (and the "Beere Baiting") to use; but though the 1647 original is obviously PD, I don't understand the law re. exact, unmodified repros of it.
Also, I'm too Luddite to change the caption on the ill. so I just made a note of it on the discussion page. Can you help?
Yours for Chuck Jones' Wagner, Jim Stinson
