80x15 microbutton[edit]

I was looking for an 80x15 microbutton, which is a common size. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Solar (talkcontribs) 22:10, 1 March 2008.

Use 94x15 one, or remove OpenVZ logo from it and it will be 80x15 I guess. I might do that later, too. --Kir 14:27, 1 March 2008 (EST)
Kir, thank you for the prompt response. I had this thought, too, but I like the OpenVZ logo in there. I'd rather have the word "powered" dropped, which appears to be the common thing to drop on 80x15's - so I was hoping that someone on your team would do that. ;-) BTW, I'd put this on the oss-security wiki, which is being run off an OpenVZ + Owl box. The first 7 microbuttons, all of them 80x15, came standard with DokuWiki, so we kind of respect the DokuWiki author's wish by keeping them around (and only adding to them). Oh, and feel free to add OpenVZ security contact info to the appropriate page in there. :-) --Solar 21:42, 2 March 2008 (EST)

Second icon tries to use the same font/kerning as all of the docuwiki icons at the bottom of your site, so it might make more sense for you. Icons are also added to Artwork and uploaded to --Kir 07:28, 3 March 2008 (EST)
Kir, thank you! I've optimized the second one with "convert -quality 100 -colors 64" (although 7 colors produces reasonable results as well - the difference is only seen when magnified) and added it to page footers on the wiki. Feel free to pick the optimized version if you like. I've also used a different and longer title="..." - this could be better for the search engines (which may dislike links that are too similar). --Solar 00:48, 4 March 2008 (EST)
Hmm...that's interesting! Using convert -quality 100 -colors 64 I was only able to reduce the image size down to 824 bytes (from 877). Yours is 660 bytes. I tried that with both ImageMagick- on F8/x86_64 system and imagemagick- on Gentoo/x86 -- same result (identical files, identical size) in both cases. Could it be a different version of ImageMagic? --Kir 15:21, 5 March 2008 (EST)
Anyway... I just realized that the color of right box is too light and the whole image is of bad contrast, so I remade the both images in darker color (in fact the right box color is now official OpenVZ logo color). I converted images to use 32-entries palette and saved them in GIMP, and it gave good results: 408 and 404 bytes. Hope you will switch to new darker version since it will look better (and more in line with the other images) on your site.

Yes, I've just updated the oss-security wiki to use your new dark image (and even smaller file) - thank you! To address your previous question, I was using ImageMagick- from FC3 - and, no, it is no longer able to reduce the size of your new image. :-) --Solar 20:07, 16 March 2008 (EDT)
