A village pump

Diagonally striped pattern on svg country mapEdit

Hello guys,

I'm trying to fill countries with a diagonally striped pattern on a svg world map in this kind of style, however, just filling countries instead of regions would be fine. Colors should be able to be determined with the ability to create transparent stripes. There are instructions on how to entirely fill and circle countries, but the above feature is missing. Anyone here who could extend the instructions or comment? Would like to use this map outside of Wikipedia in case there are different rendering requirements.

Commons is adding a background to PNGEdit

I uploaded File:Povray logo sphere.png. It has an alpha channel and no visible background. When I view the image in [1] there is an added white background behind the image. How can I fix this? Thanks. SharkD  Talk  00:52, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

There's nothing you can do about this, unfortunately. It's a new bug: phab:T198370. --El Grafo (talk) 08:02, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

SVG map neededEdit

File File:Baltic-pipe-mapa-pogladowa.png showing graphics from was recently deleted due to copyrights of the underlying map. Can someone recreate the map using existing SGV maps like File:Regenbogen location map.svg + File:Poland location map.svg? A language independent version could be used by multiple articles in d:Q4852713. --Jarekt (talk) 17:44, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

SVG Translate tool revival and improvementsEdit

Hello! As requested in the Community wishlist survey, the SVG Translate tool is being revived and improved by the Community Tech team. I am the product manager for the project and am looking for input from people who work with SVGs on Commons/other projects and have experience with them. I have put together the project page for this project and I have some open questions on the talk page. I'd appreciate if you could take a few minutes to comment on them and point out anything I have missed. Thank you. -- NKohli (WMF) (talk) 17:57, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Mockups postedEdit

Hello again. We have posted a few mockups for the new tool on the project page. You can also see them below:

We're collecting feedback on the proposed solution and the mockups on the talk page. Please comment there. Your feedback is helpful. -- NKohli (WMF) (talk) 23:34, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Gallery/metadata softwareEdit

Question for all you Commons users out there - what sort of gallery software do you use on your machines? By gallery software I mean summarising your collection of photos by date, folder and metadata tags. Currently I use Windows Live Photo Gallery, but it's no longer supported by Microsoft and is rather creaking under the strain of 24MP photos. I also use Geosetter for geocoding.

What I need the software to be able to handle is:

  • Hundreds of thousands of photos
  • Large photos, eg 30MP and above
  • Adding and removing keyword tags
  • Adding and removing people tags
  • Mass date adjustment
  • Filtering by date, folder, tags, camera, etc
  • Simple adjustments like rotating 90 degrees

Does anyone have any suggestions? -mattbuck (Talk) 16:25, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
