adding SVG images throughout my site in addition to the previous images included on all the product pages. The main product images are also being updates to SVG in some cases where they are related to shapes and fonts and symbols. The brushes and patterns will generally still be PNG but in some of the sets there are vectors so I might use those as well.

Why ?? well, trying to create a cleaner more vector site for the future and also so all the images can be sized as required instead of just 700 x 300 etc as before

Not sure if it will be of use or not.. hopefully won't slow down the site or anything

I still use Photoshop 6 at times and that runs well on windows 8.1.. hope it will still run well on windows 10. Yes, a lot of great filters out there still only for older versions (same for Illustrator with loads of filters no longer supported)

Just tried to upload a SVG image to this site and, of course, it fails. Says it needs to be an image or video. SVG is a fairly common image format and supported in most browsers now. Surely with all the new monitors - 4K / retina etc, surely SVG is one way forward ??? and therefore needs support on sites like this - surely ??

Decent meal at a decent price. A wide range of Indian / Chinese etc including sushi, naans, Chicken korma, tikka masala, seaweed, green beans in garlic, chicken satay sticks, delicious duck rolls, lots of relishes and sauces and much more + an ok selection of average cake / jelly / ice cream etc to finish and all for 8 pounds (as of Sept 2014). The place was packed at lunch time. Quite easy to eat too much.

Like many of the treasures of Valencia, badly signposted .. you would hardly know this wonderful gem of a garden even exists. A superb garden in the heart of this lovely city. A vast range of plants / trees etc with a lot of useful info. Lots of areas to sit down and stare at the plants. The garden was also very popular with the local cat population, all dozing in the searing heat. Definitely will be on my list to visit again. Also, reasonably priced at 2 euros. Totally recommended

A decently priced hotel. Large room, clean, service with a smile.. what more can I say. Location was not central enough but easy to get into the city and wander. Quiet room, nice bonus drinks in the fridge. The TV was perfect with a number of good Spanish channels as well as BBC World and a number of others. Totally recommended.

Enjoyed a very tasty spicy dumpling (with houmous) for starters (Momo). For main course, had a range of well-cooked vegetable dishes along side a Classic Nepalese curry which was enjoyable and was accompanied by Himalayan basmati rice cooked with masala and saffron. Excellent! The food was similar to an Indian restaurant but still most of the dishes tasted very different and it was a refreshing change from the normal curry and naan and rice. For dessert, honeycomb ice cream which was a perfect end to a lovely meal. A decent price as well. Definitely look forward to returning and trying out some of the other dishes. Their super hot curry is apparently a knockout also according to a friend's recommendation.

Excellent art gallery. The place was fairly deserted when I visited, not sure why.. it is a lovely gallery and should be high on anyone's list of places to visit in Valencia. Free ... The Medieval art section is worth the trip, some truly oddball paintings there. The courtyards were lovely with a good selection of Roman period / Christian art. Definitely will go again

The restaurant is a little out of the way but it is definitely a place to check out. A bar downstairs, the restaurant upstairs. The decor was fairly ok, nothing special. The staff were very good and attentive. The food was excellent. I had a delicious mutton tikka (most of the time Lamb seems to be used but I prefer mutton) for starters; my friends had very a very tasty onion bhaji and sheek kebab. The relishes were very enjoyable and had a nice depth of flavour, certainly better than the usual Indian restaurant relishes. The poppadoms were ok, average. The main courses were all excellent, a standout being the flavoursome Chef's special curry and rice (though there was a little too much lamb for my liking; if only mutton could have been in that dish as well). It was very hot even though it did state 'medium' but it was one of the best curries I have had for ages and ages. The pershwari naan was just right with a wonderful taste of coconut). My friends all said their meals (various curries) were all perfect. To finish the meal, a free drink and a mint. I would have had a desert (though not sure if they had any as they were not listed on their menu) but for that we were all too well satisfied with our meal and couldn't eat a thing more. Totally recommended restaurant. Now if only mutton was on the menu for all their dishes.

Never purchased any of their meals from their menu, always gone for the buffet. The buffet is reasonably priced and the food has always been warm and tasty. There is a decent selection such as Chicken Korma, Bhuna, Vegetable curry, selection of rices, Madras, Lamb dishes and more as part of the main buffet. There is also a reasonable selection of standard starters such as Onion Bhaji, Chicken dishes, chips (!) as well as relishes and salad. The desserts are not too bad (though a limited selection) such as jellies, cake, etc. Also Mango or Strawberry Sorbets (always good and refreshing). Haven't had a bad meal there...
