    All the controls https://community.kde.org/KDE_Visual_Design_Group/HIG/ControlsList are supposed to have a screenshot of an application using the control. Search in the KDE applications for a good usage of the control in a real world app, create a screenshoot of the usage and upload the image into the HIG
  • Proof-read HIG pages and correct spelling, grammar, ... mistakes.
