svg file size
Hi. I have made a 4 MB svg file. It is smaller then 10 MB limit. When I click on the image ( like here but please reload the page ) I see some animations. It takes a few ( 5) seconds to open full image on my computer ( 15 GB Ram)
When I ask other people about it :
- "for me both the new and the old version do not really show an animation, but after some time of loading there is a presumably complete image. I did not complain about this earlier, because i blames it on my old hardware and slow internet connection ..."
- "I clicked on the image yesterday, but I am travelling, with a very small laptop with only 2GB RAM and when I clicked on it, the CPU went to 100% for two minutes and nothing happened."
- The problem is that your script is generating a large number of circles along the curves, which increase the file size and slow down the rendering, but aren't actually visible. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Maxima's draw2d function, but what you want to do is to completely disable the rendering of points wherever you use "points_joined = true".

Getting full resolution from Apple Photos on OS-X
I have been trying to upload photos taken with my iPhone X. I used to use the Commons app, but that is no longer supported. The method I am now using is to import the photos using Apple's Photos application on OS-X (everything up to date). I then export the photos from Photos as jpg files, which I then upload to Commons using the standard upload tool. Even at Photo's maximum jpg export setting I get reduced resolution. For example in File:Differential Analyzer CHM.agr.jpg, which I recently uploaded, the labels on the various controls appear crisp and fully legible on my Photos screen, but are somewhat blurry on Commons even when selecting full resolution. Is there another way to upload the file at the full resolution the iPhone produces? I have many more photos that I would like to upload at full resolution.--agr (talk) 15:47, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
- @ArnoldReinhold: Have you tried backing up your iPhone to iCloud and then downloading the photos from icloud.com using a web browser? — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 06:06, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
- @Jeff G.: Thanks for your suggestion. I looked at the same Differential Analyzer CHM.agr.jpg Commons file again today and it looks fine. There must have been some database delay in updating the higher resolution image I uploaded. It's a relief actually as I have a number of photos to upload and there are too many steps as is.--agr (talk) 16:25, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
