The Graphics Lab is a project to improve the graphical content of the Wikimedia projects. Requests for image improvements can be added to the workshop pages: Illustrations, Photographs and Maps. For questions or suggestions one can use the talk pages: Talk:Graphics Lab, Talk:Illustrations, Talk:Photographs and Talk:Maps.
This specific page is the main, central discussion page for the entire graphics lab. Any comments or questions about the lab may be made here. Note that requests for image improvement, etc. do not belong here but should go on one of the main requests pages

What about Xfig?[edit]

Also Xfig is a very good program to produce vector images. It handles many formats, which also includes code for LaTeX packages like PSTricks.

Another useful feature would be to render within wikipedia code for such packages, in the same way that it renders LaTeX formulas. If the later is possible, many diagrams from LaTeX sources could be exported to wikipedia and some simple diagrams could be quickly typed in the same way that today we can include LaTeX formulas in articles.

The only "limitation" is that it is not ported to windows. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:14, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
