[SOLVED] Convert png to svg

imagemagick has a command called convert

Code: Select all

convert input.png output.svg
To change to white you can't mtpaint but I can open it in gimp. I have no skills in gimp but did a search on how to do it
my image site can't handle the 2M size of svg so its a dropbox

image takes a while to load in FF.....and falsely display background colour as white...but in gimp it shows a transparent bg
OK looking at help now ref http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5588 ... e-to-black
OK converted to white is easy
https://www.dropbox.com/s/2argqduysl5a6 ... e.svg?dl=0

converted to black will need the bg colour changed to what? edit changed to white

Salutations... :good:

I haven't done any svg conversion... :oops: However... my rule of thumb is...
Using Gimp... convert (export?) source format to tiff then convert (export?) to target format.

Best Regards... :beer:

The white logo is the one I am interested in. The one you uploaded to dropbox is a png whereas I was after an svg.

EDIT: No problem I was able to convert it with a free online converter. Nice quality. Thanks.

the one I uploaded is a svg and you click the download button.

If you right hand click the actual image FF and whatever browser you use seems to have no svg capabiliity and decides to download as a png

that will be 2c please :D
