Lazur URH 2016-05-30 21:57:04 Just regular spam. The site's server automatically converts raster images sent in email to the right adresses to vectors and upload it as a clipart. Most of the possibilities are presented here: https://openclipart.org/collection/collection-detail/Lazur%20URH/9734 and also here: https://openclipart.org/collection/collection-detail/Lazur%20URH/10299. (Tile filters are newer and not present in those collections.) BUT what once was spam, if it doesn't violate 2rd party's rights it can serve as source for other cliparts too. Spammers are contributors. For example these are spam remixes: https://openclipart.org/collection/collection-detail/Lazur%20URH/9124 It can get as constructive as this treasure hunt: https://openclipart.org/collection/collection-detail/Lazur%20URH/10172

You obviously spend quite some time with the artwork, so maybe giving a few minutes more, you could have descriptions to your own liking. Thank you for considering. :)

AdamStanislav 2016-05-30 05:47:36 I mentioned elsewhere this was not really a remix because it was identical to the original. Well, it turned out that after several hours of working on this, I made a typo which changed a global value and as a result this is slightly different from the original, and, therefore, an actual remix. :-) The typo is embarrassing, but, ironically, I kind of like its effect better than the original. But, if you need to use the original graphic in some software that cannot handle the original, you can easily change my remix to look exactly like the original. To do that, simply download the SVG graphic, open it (the cute-girl.svg file) in a plain text editor. Go to line 5, and change stroke-width="0.009375" to stroke-width="0.09375" (i.e., one fewer 0 after the decimal point). Save the file, perhaps under a different name but still with the .svg extension, such as cute-girl2.svg, and you’re done. The difference is very subtle, but there is a difference (though not visible in all software). So, why don’t I just upload that as a second remix? Because if you know how to download files, you know how to find line 5 and delete one 0 after the only decimal point on that line. It’s certainly a nice but very easy exercise in editing SVG by hand! :-)

AdamStanislav 2016-05-29 04:11:33 Before anybody jumps at me for posting this quote because of simple misreading it, Bertrand Russell is not making fun of Mrs. Aristotle. He is commenting on Aristotle’s making wild unjustified proclamations because he just assumed his ideas had to be correct and it, sadly, never occurred to him to verify his ideas by actually looking at things and and seeing how they work and what they are. This is no minor matter, as for many centuries Aristotle was considered the final arbiter of reality. For example, he claimed all celestial objects had a smooth service. Centuries later, Galileo Galilei was called to the Holy Inquisition because he had the audacity to claim the surface of the Moon had mountains and valleys. He offered Cardinal (St.) Robert Bellarmine, the Chief Inquisitor of his time, his telescope and invited him to see for himself. The future Saint refused because “the matter has already been settled by Aristotle” (of course, despite the quotation marks he actually said it in Italian, not in English as quoted here). So, I am very pleased that someone as intelligent and as wise as Bertrand Russell did not think as highly of Aristotle as many people do to this day. Let’s just say it: Aristotle was the smuggest smugger in history!

AdamStanislav 2016-05-29 00:23:06 Yes, something changed. Something always changes when you include text in a graphic without converting it to a path. In this case, you included (or Inkscape included it for you) the Century Schoolbook Cyrillic Bold font. As a result, some software displays the text properly, other software does not. Not all SVG software understands SVG fonts. In that case, if the computer has that font (in this case, if Century Schoolbook Cyrillic Bold is installed on the computer), the software will use it. If it doesn’t, the software will substitute some other, random, font. Well, not quite random, it will use a default font, whatever that is. So what changed? Earlier versions of Inkscape substituted a sans-serif font that fit into the graphic nicely (even though, Century Schoolbook is a serif font). It seems that OpenClipArt.org uses Inkview to convert SVG into PNG and does so on the fly, every time someone visits any page here. Inkview is a companion program to Inkscape with which it shares its base code, and apparently this web site was still using an older version. So, at the time you uploaded it, it happened to fit in the preview. The current version of Inkscape is 0.91, and whatever font substitution it does, it does not fit in your graphic. Presumably, the web site upgraded its version of Inkscape, and with it the version of Inkview, and that is what changed. The solution to the problem is simple. Convert all text in your clip art into a path, or a series of paths. At any rate, I have uploade a remix with the Century Schoolbook Bold (albeit not Cyrillic) font used, then converted to curves/paths and adjusted by hand to have a smaller default size, as the original was huge (or should I say YUUUGE).

JayNick 2016-05-26 04:03:11 Sorry I'm late to the party - been very busy. Create a symbol and give it an id attribute, then a use element can duplicate the SVG symbol when referenced with an xlink:href attribute. Note the xlink:href attribute references a predefined id when preceded with a # character. Of course the ultimate SVG reference is the W3C specification. Here is the definition of the <use> element http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/struct.html#UseElement A good example to view the source of is http://www.w3.org/Icons/SVG/svg-logo.svg Not sure I agree that re-using symbols take more processing time. Rescaling is done every time the window is resized so the browser software routines to do that are highly optimized. I believe it to be much faster than redrawing each path definition in the original code. Just my thoughts - can't say for sure.

AdamStanislav 2016-05-25 18:19:43 I realize that. Jay’s site has easy tutorials for all these little tricks. And the other one explains the “use” element specifically, what it does and how to use it. Between the two of them, you can learn what you need to know for these edge cases without learning everything about the internal workings of SVG. Then you’ll be able to see what Jay did to your original and use it for any other graphic of this type. Remember, SVG is a markup language (like HTML), not a programming language. Markup languages are much easier to learn than programming languages.

AdamStanislav 2016-05-25 03:31:05 Hello, GDJ. I was waiting for JayNick to answer your question, but finally decided to answer it myself. The graphic consists of one graphic element that is displayed repeatedly around the circle and at different sizes. The difference between the original and the remix is that the original (I mean the SVG source code) spells it out repeatedly, always with different numeric values, but the remix defines it once (using the defs element of SVG), then repeatedly posts a reference to that definition along with the necessary translation, rotation and scaling (using the use element of SVG). This accomplishes the same result as the original but saves a lot of space (while forcing the SVG host to recalculate all the numeric values every time it displays the graphic). Essentially it trades off rendering time for storage space. It happens so fast that we humans don’t even notice that it takes somewhat longer to render, so it’s a good tradeoff.

AdamStanislav 2016-05-24 20:03:30 I think I will just write a simple program to accomplish the replacements. But I have to take care of my health first, unfortunately. Ultimately, I’d like to write a program that will allow me to describe a maze and it will create the maze and produce the SVG for that maze. I have it all in my head, if only I can find the energy to write the software. If I ever get to it, I’ll release it with a similar license Daedalus uses, i.e., any maze created with it will belong to whomever creates it, just as any novel belongs to whomever wrote it, not to the creator of the word processor.
