vector image files wanted

Postby BarryDalHerbert » Sat 28.08.2021, 14:05

Does anybody have vector files of the:
LOTUS word and
ELAN word for the M100?

So the official Lotus documentation words for our cars in a vector (resizeable) file format.
Or can point me to somewhere that they are available for download?
Please?

I've published this in WikiMedia Commons - hope it is useful.

Anyone looking for the nose cone/wheel centres might also be interested in (this one was already out there):

How about dropping this into the manuals section along with the other useful pictures and videos?

Good work. Thanks.
I have never heard of WikiMedia Commons...
The M100 rear badge above is there along with the nasty new Lotus logo that was designed by somebody's child using Microsnot PaintBrush.
Have a look here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.p ... arch&go=Go To download, click on items that take your fancy.

If you're talking to Jon, then it is because he either doesn't want it there, or (hopefully more likely) hasn't got the access to do so.....

.... however, if it is "just" an instruction to me to do so, then certainly, sir.... I'll get straight onto it :D



I have compromised (seeing as it is a licensed file, with Jon owning the copywrite) and placed an image on the manuals page (under 'useful images') with a link to the original hosting page from where the license can be viewed, and the file downloaded. That way, it can be found and used (as appropriate), but Jon retains total control over the file and it's content, to either retain, alter or remove as he wishes.

Hopefully, this will enable people to get to it for as long as the author wishes it to be "freely" available.

Thanks DaPinky!

I was originally planning to upload direct to LEC - but the upload function wouldn't permit SVG. So I thought WikiMedia Commons seemed like as good a place as any since there is other similar content there and the licensing rights are open and simple.

I've put one up for the SE too - though the S looks small compared to the E (even though they are the same height). Not sure if that is correct? Perhaps someone can let me know - I couldn't find a good enough quality reference image to check this....

Jon,

The "S" on my (old) badges does appear to be slightly taller than the "E" - not noticed it before, and possibly done to make it more aesthetically pleasing????

Who knows!

Thanks - the S is definitely outsized compared to the E. I've updated the graphic accordingly (note: anyone with this page already loaded will have to force a refresh of the browser cache - hold shift and double click the reload page icon at the top of the browser usually does the trick).

That looks a lot better to my aged eyesight! - now added to 'Manuals' website.

Thanks for making these, I'm sure that they will be a great addition to information held.
