I've uploaded two SVG images, because I wanted to use them in an article: Image:Nuvola-fs-blockdev.svg and Image:Nuvola-fs-chardev.svg. I didn't realize how large they were however. I think it would be a good idea to gzip them and upload them as SVGZ (provided it is supported by the software...).—Kbolino 01:44, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

As far as I know, SVGZ is not supported. I guess processor speed is more expensive than disk space. Anyway, 36KB for Image:Nuvola-fs-blockdev.svg is hardly huge, given that a JPG photo can easily be 1 MB. User:dbenbenn 08:02, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

The problem is: The SVGs contain JPEG thumbnails(?) hidden in the metadata section. This increases file sizes significantly. Removing them -- and other superfluous header data -- would shrink each file by more than 16k.

Furthermore, the width and height attributes should be much larger. Maybe someone can achieve this via script. --Pumbaa 20:57, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
