NoN Out of scope for the Community Tech team, too big

There is plenty of free software to do this stuff already. I use both Gimp and Darktable for this kind of thing, and there is also Inkscape for SVG work -- Thennicke (talk) 02:30, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

@Thennicke: We want a tool belong to us and translatable.Thank you --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 08:48, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
Beware NIH syndrome. Tools already exist, let's not reinvent the wheel. Anomie (talk) 16:27, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
I concur with thennicke and anomie. The tools gimp, inkscape, darktable, imagemagick and others are opensource, they belong to everybody, so also to the wiki community. I am an occasional contributor to some wikipedia graphic labs and I find those tools are sufficient for the work needed here. Regards--Basquetteur (talk) 17:17, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
@Thennicke, Anomie, and Basquetteur:
  1. These tools are not translatable; therefore, only a small group of contributors will benefit
  2. We want one tool to help us improve any file--ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 06:38, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
    Sure they're translatable. For example, here is a page about The Gimp's current translation status, and here is a document about how to contribute translations for Inkscape. As for "one tool", it's often better to have multiple tools that are good at one thing each than to have one tool that's mediocre at everything. Anomie (talk) 14:30, 14 November 2017 (UTC)


This is a huge undertaking that our team doesn't have the resources for. Additionally, there are lots of free graphics tools so the benefit from the proposed solution will be marginal at most. Thanks for participating in our survey. Max Semenik (talk) 00:26, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
