Embedding a raster image into an svg won't convert it to vectors "automagically". There is no vector content in this svg.

The least you can do is love your favorite artist/poster. What's all the bother with that. If your going to download the clipart then thank the creator or poster with a vote. Post some comments about what you like about the clipart...this " that's beautiful or great work", should include a little bit more detail like exactly what you like about it etc. Anyway...

Early appliances did come with a plug that fit (or screwed) into a existing light socket. Sounds unsafe, but at that time there were not a lot safety standards. For anyone's FYI...

The Martin 2017-12-08 00:09:27 I am longing for guidelines from the operators of Openclipart: What is welcome here, what is not, what are best practises? In the absence of rules or guidelines, I could look for some veteran users and consider them my role models. But nobody tells me who has got "correct" uploads. The statistics just tell me, what users like and how much they look or download. Is "more" then a sign for better files or just for prettier artwork? Or else, I can just create what I think is reasonable clipart with reasonable effort und let the users decide what they like or not. For the trigger-issue of this discussion I would guess, that some user who comes here to download clipart would typically not edit it. People who know how to edit the stuff in Inkscape (or whatever tool), might just create their own artwork. Or could quickly delete a text-group and create a new text (maybe in another language) and bend it round the thing. So if I had to chose between an edit-friendly upload and a render-stable upload, I would opt for the latter. But I guess a contributor who loves his users could provide both versions and note such detail in the description. I see other people contribute far too many variations where only a colour is altered, and the operators allow it. So why not provide two versions, where significant text is involved.

The Martin 2017-12-07 23:24:04 Nice job, but gets me curious: Are you saying that this plug-thingy was meant to be screwed into an existing ligh-socket? Sounds creepy, when considering the (modern) difference in rating between a light bulb and an electrical iron. I have seen "hotel adapters" for hotel rooms which provide no sockets at all to their guests even recently in Africa: Those go between a light-bulb and its socket. So the light-bulb still gets power, and the guest has got two additional, lateral sockets for whatever. But of course those are hanging off the ceiling... I wonder whether "ponged" above should read "pronged".

SunKing2 2017-12-07 17:05:20 For further small-ification, you can do this online in under 30 seconds: https://jakearchibald.github.io/svgomg/ Click on "Open SVG". Select your file. Click on the button for "Compare gzipped" to turn it off. Now look at the bottom of the screen, it says how much it reduced the file size. Click on the download button beside it, save it to your directory. You're done. I did this and it says downloaded to 2767 bytes (the original of opticalIllustion3.svg was 3743 bytes), with no visible difference. If you are not overly concerned about perfection, you can slide the slider to a precision of "1" for 2.66K file size. This is just a tip, you can use it if it works for you. This software does some niceties that even Inkscape's "save as" / "Optimized SVG" won't do; I've found it can do a better job in optimizing, and I like the look of the final file, no extra stuff. (Optional): I then always look at them: one immediately after another using an image viewer software that allows you to just slide the mouse wheel up and down to look two images, one after the other in rapid succession. My viewer is ristretto 0.8.0 for Ubuntu. (Not optional): Then look at the newly saved creation in Inkscape or your favorite other svg software. This is not optional because I often find that my reduced-sized svg file looks fine in Chromium and Firefox, and even in my risretto image viewer, but it looks completely destroyed in Inkscape .92. (My tip): I then write a html file, with a colored background, add an image tag which points to my newly created svg file. Then I look at the newly created html file, zoomed in, in both Firefox and Chromium. This has shown me countless times things such as white vs transparent parts, strokes that stick out past another path (that may need to be altered with a stroke cap or join, or just plain moved). (This tip has nothing to do with your artwork) I have no affiliation with the above products or web sites. I just discovered the optimizing website by accident one day, and found it's useful for me.

AdamStanislav 2017-12-07 16:53:35 @JayNick :) @dordy No, nothing to do with your browser. The thumbnails are PNG bitmaps, which all browsers are interpreting the same (as far as I know). It is the software that creates those thumbnails (on OpenClipart server) that can convert identically looking SVG files into somewhat differently looking PNG bitmaps. For one, they use different algorithms to convert files created by a certain software than for files created by all other software and the files coded and optimized by hand. The reasons for that should be obvious to anyone who has ever read my view of the certain software, whose name I shall not mention here because whenever I do, the reaction reminds me of the aria which says, “But the tigers come at night with their voices soft as thunder, as they tear your hope apart, as they turn your dream to shame.” :)

JayNick 2017-12-07 16:44:28 Visual sloppiness??? What do you mean by that @Lazur URH? The conversion of the SVG file to PNG is the problem. I don't know what software is used to do that, but it has a problem. The large PNG 2400px looks pretty good, the 800px PNG has some distortion. The 300px and 90px PNGs are just bad. Edit the SVG file and give the <svg> element attributes: width="90" height="90" and it looks just fine - no visual sloppiness.

AdamStanislav 2017-12-07 04:40:18 Since, like me, you like the source as small as possible, might I suggest changing the viewBox to "-200 -200 400 400". That is perfectly legal SVG, and allows you to have all the circles with cx="0" cy="0", both of which are defaults, so they need not be explicitly specified. That would shave 18*4 = 72 bytes. Not only that, you could than reduce the rotations to rotate(7.83) and skip the 200,200 because the default is rotation about [0,0]. That would allow you to shave off additional 8*39 = 312 bytes. I have not analyzed to see if that would also allow you to get rid of the translate(20,20), but if so, it would shave off an additional 17*39 = 663 bytes (yes, 17, because the blank space before the keyword translate would also be eliminated). Of course, it would add 6 bytes to the viewBox, but that is a small cost if it saves you all those other bytes. Most importantly, however, it makes the math much simpler because rotating about [0,0] is mathematically much simpler than rotating about any other point.

JayNick 2017-12-07 01:46:15 @dordy - I meant no criticism or offense. Your image is from 2011, so we've both learned a lot since then. I discovered the image while perusing your excellent work. Thank you for your contributions. I am working on a project using images from openclipart, but I need them to be small, so I see how much I can reduce them for my use. I upload some where the reduction in file size is significant, because the SVG file size matters to me. In this case, I also challenged myself to completely redo it - but I used your drawing technique. Thanks for taking a look at my eBook and feedback. It's not the greatest, but the price is right.

Lazur URH 2017-12-06 11:46:24 In inkscape there is not such thing as a dropdown list for brushes yet. Can select any path, copy it, then when drawing a new path with the pen/pencil tool the shape is available with the "shape from clipboard" option, which adds the "brush effect" as a live path effect (LPE)/path effect (jargon changed somewhere from lpe to path effect). Path effects can be stacked, like in this example, and the pattern alomg path effect can also be added in a later stage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igIen3UY_Bc. The pattern in the pattern along path path effect can also be linked if you use the path effect editor and not the shape from clipboard option in the pen/pencil tool settings, which means you can easily modify the pattern/"brush" shape any time without the xml editor.

cactus cowboy 2017-12-06 11:27:59 actually, if you have illustrator any version you don't really need the file i uploaded to dropbox because i left the sample i posted here as paths. IOW they are not filled objects and should show that way in inkscape as well as illustrator. AFAIK, you just download the file from the link i provided and it will download as an .ai extension but not if you don't have illustrator. in that case download the svg file here and use that in inkscape. i don't know how one creates brushes in inkscape although i'm sure you can or how one save them and in what extension inkscape uses. maybe you can enlighten me all about it. as for the time limit i'll see how it goes.

Your remix is historically accurate. It is my understanding that early appliances were either sold with a pronged plug or a light socket plug, depending on the needs of the buyer. There were also adapters that allow home owners to plugin a pronged plug into a light socket. My remix was just a means of providing an alternative to that time period. Anyways, it is ok that you no longer have the original image. Your upload just peaked interest, that's all.

j4p4n 2017-12-06 00:05:07 @Arvin61r58, I go through so many images I sometimes don't keep my originals, sorry for adding the plug, your remix is essentially what it looked like though, no plug on the end. I wasn't going for historical accuracy though, sorry for that annoying mess up on my part.

Arvin61r58 2017-12-05 14:46:56 Thank you. I had asked because I had wanted to see the original without the added plug. So, if you don't mind can you upload the image without the added plug? Thanks again. :)

cyberang3l 2017-12-05 12:32:16 I got some popcorn and went through the comments. Entertaining, but I guess not for much longer. First of all, I am not a "graphics designer". I only design my own figures that I want to use in my presentations, meaning that learning the SVG standard for me is out of the scope of my work. Moreover, editing art manually in XML (if batch processing is needed that's another story) sounds like a thing that only the 0.0001% of the artists may ever need to do in some special case. It is like asking someone to write the complete code for a program directly in assembly programming language in our days (therefore, asking them first to learn computer architecture). Although I don't know much about the SVG specification, I do know about standardization and I can very well differentiate that when I see two different saving options in inkscape (one called "Inkscape SVG" and one more just being called "SVG"), one of them is not "fully" standardized. Most likely it is a superset of the standard. The only valid point that I see with including fonts after this long discussion, is indeed the fact that somebody may not be having installed in their computer the font that I used. Other than that, Inkscape is free and open source, and it is by far the most accessible and community friendly way to edit clipart. I understand that not everyone likes it and/or uses it, and this is totally fine. At least, Inkscape is cross platform (some of us use Linux) and it is free, meaning that if someone needs so badly to edit an Inkscape SVG file that doesn't render as expected in their platform, in the worst case they have to install one additional piece of free software and export the file in the format they want (if they don't care about the additional stuff such as guide lines/layers/path-effects etc). My takeaway from this thread is that I will convert the text to path next time that I will upload something to openclipart, but I will reuse the inkscape SVG format because the additional information that is saved in the Inkscape SVG is useful for future editing of the files.

Firkin 2017-12-05 09:35:43 This sun was incorporated into a page ornament in a 19th century book. I simply isolated it from the British Library's jpg, cleaned it up slightly and traced it with Inkscape. I've another version in my backlog of things to upload where the sun has been tweaked to look a bit happier. This I will upload later today.

Lazur URH 2017-12-05 07:10:41 @rpm No such thing as "pure svg". While saving you can choose between plain svg, inkscape svg, and svgz amongst others. Plain svg won't save guide lines, page border&background colour settings, will flatten down the layer structure to groups, will flatten path effects down to paths off the top of my head. But won't remove unnecessary unused definitions as far as I know. You have to do that manually. To tell from the codes if there is an embedded raster image look for the base64 tag which refers to base64 encoded parts. The result is a huge block of characters that cannot be mistaken for coordinates. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64 and this page for reference on the inkscape svg document structure: http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/FileFormat-Default.html

Lazur URH 2017-12-05 06:34:46 @AdamStanislav you would know the additional data browsers don't render can be essential if you ever used those features. Inkscape svg *is* proper svg. Inkscape was built up from sodipodi -it's beginning- to be as close to the svg specs as possible (no matter how crude that format is). For the most compatibility (and browser support?). Most users may not know the differences between the two save options but would be really pissed if their layers/guide lines/grids/path effects/mesh gradients were gone they put effort into just because they saved to plain svg after reopening. If someone opens a drawing in a drawing program it is expected to be editable without limitations. A flattened svg is nowhere the right choice for those who actually draw or edit them. No, illustrator is not irrelevant since you call a FLOSS program bloatware and a plague. Illustrator is considered the industry standard for vector illustrations. Inkscape's "own format" is svg -it is valid svg, easy to edit even with a notepad. Illustrator ai is proprietary only illustrator can handle. (And to make .ai format compatible to some extent, a pdf double is saved within the file of the same drawing... storing the image twice.) The "unseen" data in a drawing is what makes the difference between the craftmen and the copycats. If it "was" strictly about flattened cliparts, uploading eps would be enough and certainly that would save huge space as well. In inkscape you can choose between absolute and relative coordinates and the number of decimals and spaces in the svg output. That option is totally unrelated to saving as svg or plain svg. Plain svg can hold both the decimals and the spaces as the default svg. 1 decimal may suit *your* needs but 8 digits are necessary for precise scalability. Guessing here, you probably never had to rely on a higher accuracy. Sloppyness not worth any extra space. Affinity designer should provide even further scalability than inkscape, have no idea how you missed that more digits are better in practice. Using arcs or not is another unrelated problem. Yes, using arcs "would be" nice, but unfortunately svg is not a cad format. Note that cad programs cannot transfer arcs in polylines into half decent pdf-s either. Still these two unrelated problems -rant about too many digits of precision and a missing arc feature- are controversing eachother. Inkscape can render arcs in path segments, only missing the interface to draw them. It is a foss project, if you are interested in a specific feature you can find a way adding it. Guessing booleans operations between arcs and polylines is problematic a bit, but what do I know. (I don't know how to code or compile inkscape, but know for sure illustrator/affinity designer/any commercial program won't give away their source codes.) Coordinate system is being worked on, expected to be revised in inkscape 0.94. See the roadmap here: http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Roadmap -so it will mach the specs, defining the coordinate system origin as the top-left corner of the document, and *not* the centre as you expect. Openclipart developers and inkscape developers are "closely" related. >>>The Openclipart library, sometimes abbreviated as OCAL (Open Clip Art Library), was started in early 2004 by Jon Phillips and >>>Bryce Harrington, developers for vector graphics software Sodipodi, and later its fork, Inkscape. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Openclipart As inkscape is even more up to date with rendering svg-s than webkit or mozilla, even the thumbnails are generated with inkscape seen in the library -for inkscape drawn cliparts. Wondering who has medieval religious prejudices? Rather someone is ignoring basic facts and concepts.

AdamStanislav 2017-12-05 04:23:53 @rpm, When you choose Save As, it offers a bunch of formats in the pull-down menu. One of them is Plain SVG (it is right below Inkscape SVG). There also is Optimized SVG which is even better, but it does not always work, and when it does not, Inkscape may just crash and save nothing. Note that if you choose Plain SVG, Inkscape will prompt you to save it as Inkscape SVG when you try to quit, because Inkscape saves a lot of its own stuff in its own format it refers to as Inkscape SVG (it reminds me of the infamous phrase “Microsoft standard” which is not a standard at all but Microsoft pretends it soon will be). You can save it in both formats under different names (and it would be much simpler if it used the same name but a different file extension), one in the so called Inkscape SVG, so you can have whatever you did with it in Inkscape, and one in Plain SVG to upload here. Both of them will look the same when displayed, but the so called Inkscape SVG file will be huge because of all the extra Inkscape-only things. If you examine the Inkscape SVG file in a text editor, you will see such things as a long string of letters like ggggggggggggggggggggg..., whatever that is supposed to mean, and other data that has nothing to do with SVG.

pjsvbfcm 2017-12-05 02:17:51 "The Inkscape project does not only use SVG as its native file format, it also takes part in the further development and refinement of SVG features by delegating a representative to the W3C SVG Working Group." "The only thing in Inkscape which currently (v.91) is not standard-compliant is flowed text. This is because the standardization process for SVG 1.2, where flowed text was supposed to be included, was interrupted. But by then, the feature was already in the software, and it was useful for many users. As a result, the Inkscape developers did not just take it away again, but rather kept it in, so people can dynamically edit their texts from within Inkscape." More on this at https://inkscape.org/da/develop/about-svg/ V.92 has additional features like mesh gradients no yet implemented in standard svg. Explication of the difference between Inkscape and plain svg and things you can do about it. Inkscape for the Web http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Web-Inkscape.html SVG 2.0 will have more of the newer features of Inkscape. The artist's rule is use whatever tool that works for you. If you want to paint with a hammer, you might even get a one-person show in a New York gallery.

rpm 2017-12-05 01:46:57 @AdamStanislav, you say that Inkscape, "actually does have the option to export its designs as proper SVG, but most of its users do not know the difference." So how do we tell the difference? How do I get Inkscape to save in pure .svg? While we're at it, how do I tell if I've inadvertently saved a bitmap image embedded in a .svg file? I have opened something I'd tried in Notepad++ and I'm not sure what I'm looking at.

AdamStanislav 2017-12-05 00:43:56 Of course, I’m not expecting that from others. My entire point here is that Inkscape should be saving its own designs using a different file extension (.ink might work, for example) and move its Save As Plain SVG to Export as Plain SVG. Then we would get standard SVG uploads here and we certainly would not have people assuming that this is a web site for Inkscape users, as is clearly seen in the uploader’s statement that it is OK for him to use fonts because you can just open it in Inkscape. That a certain member has been going out of his way to twist everything I say since the day I started uploading here because in his mind it was against his medieval religious prejudices, is not a good reason to read anything in my words that I did not state explicitly.
