Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH Archive/Template for requesting JPGs be replaced with PNG

Wikipedia has a template that you use to mark a JPG that should be replaced with a PNG or SVG. Is there anything equivilent here? The page at Wikipedia that describes the template is {{BadJPEG}}.Unsigned comment by Will Pittenger (talk • contribs).

I had no idea what the equivilent was. Thanks for solving that problem.Will 08:29, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

  • No prob. {{GIF to PNG}} and {{PNG to JPEG}} would probably be useful as well, but I or someone else can slap those together later… –SentryTalk 08:36, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

How popular is SVG here? If people here like it despite the lack of support by IE6, you might want to port {{ShouldBeSVG}}.

  • SVGs are rendered to PNGs on the server side, so no problem here. I think that scalable images should indeed be uploaded in SVG. - Sikon (Vacation) 10:25, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

So would that template be useful here?Will 14:44, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

  • No, because SVG creation requires a vector graphics editor, like Inkscape, and is for advanced users. - Sikon (Vacation) 18:05, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
