How to Convert SVG to PDF

Home > Convert SVG to PDF

Scalable Vector Graphics or SVG is a XML based image file format used for depicting two dimensional images with additional backing for animation. Since these are XML based files, hence they can be searched, scripted, compressed and edited easily using regular text editors. They can be opened and viewed without the help of add-ons such as Adobe, Corel etc. It is used by major web browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari and supports a wide variety of text, shapes, colours, painting, and filter effects.

Nonetheless, it is advisable to convert SVG to PDF format while sharing it with others, so that it becomes platform independent. In case of SVG file, the device needs appropriate programs to fully recognize and support the file format to develop it properly.
