delete or modify the EXIF

hi how can delete or modify the EXIF ( private details ) of file-? --Lishaih (talk) 10:45, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi Lishaih, first upload a new version of the file that has the relevant sections of the EXIF removed (click on "Upload a new version of this file" below the File history here). Then ask an admin (e.g. at the Administrators' noticeboard) to delete/hide the old version. In case you need a free piece of software to modify the EXIF data, I suggest having a look at Phil Harvey's ExifTool, possibly in combination with ExifToolGUI if you don't like the command line interface. Hope that helps? --El Grafo (talk) 12:13, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
… or just tell us what exactly you want to have removed so someone can do it for you. I assume you you want to get rid of the e-mail address and possibly your name? --El Grafo (talk) 12:15, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

How do I fix the text kerning on an SVG?

(From Commons:Help_desk#How_do_I_fix_the_text_kerning_on_an_SVG?) I vectorized two raster images File:Aris mod kl.png and File:ARIS Model.jpg to File:ARIS Model DE.svg and File:ARIS Model EN.svg, but the text is being rendered bizarrely by Commons. How would I fix this? Thanks. ChromoCascade (talk) 17:05, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

This one too: File:Pcsynthese.png to File:Phthalocyanine Synthesis.svg. ChromoCascade (talk) 18:26, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
ChromoCascade I believe the problem happening is because the renderer (RSVG) has a bug where it has problems with small fonts. The workaround is to change the image so larger fonts are used. I uploaded a new version to File:ARIS Model DE.svg as a example. - Offnfopt(talk) 18:46, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
ChromoCascade the issue with File:Phthalocyanine Synthesis.svg appears to also be the same small font bug and the black box is being caused by a flow element. I've uploaded new revisions to the files you listed. - Offnfopt(talk) 21:29, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
@Offnfopt: How small is too small? Are there tasks in Phabricator for these bugs?   — Jeff G. ツ 23:18, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
Jeff G. regarding what size is too small, I don't think there is a definitive answer to that since multiple factors can come into play. Some of those factors are scaling via transforms and the parameters for the documents scaling. In this specific case these documents used font sizes that ranged around 2 to 4 pixels. I couldn't remember the phabricator number but now I see El Grafo linked to it in OPs help desk thread, looks like it is phab:T36947 for the small font issue. - Offnfopt(talk) 23:38, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Question on trademark signs.

Should one remove the trademark or copyright signs? For example, on [1], the logo has a trademark symbol (™). Should this be removed on the transfer to .svg? EggOfReason (talk) 19:14, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

No, and please don't upload it here because it may exceed COM:TOO#United States.   — Jeff G. ツ 08:53, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Help cropping out painting frame?

According to Commons:Deletion requests/File:Taddeo gaddi, formelle dell'armadio della sacrestia di santa croce, 01 crocifissione.jpg, the physical frame in File:Taddeo gaddi, formelle dell'armadio della sacrestia di santa croce, 01 crocifissione.jpg makes it subject to copyright. Can anyone help crop out the frame so that we can keep the image? Thanks. - Themightyquill (talk) 10:47, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
