Create vector files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a BMP (Bitmap Image File) file and from this, create a vector-based SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file that you can then download and edit/use within vector file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Options are available to specify/remove a background color if the source BMP image does not contain a transparent background. Our tool can attempt to determine the background color automatically or you can manually specify the background color to remove.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an SVG file from a BMP file.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your BMP file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the BMP to SVG conversion has completed, you can download your SVG file straight away.
We aim to process all BMP to SVG conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the BMP file you submit to us. The resulting SVG file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our BMP to SVG tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Full Name: Bitmap Image File
Mime Type: image/bmp
The BMP file format is a two dimensional image file format popular on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Data is stored in the BMP file in a raster format with pixels being represented using various colour depths ranging from monocrome 1-bit per pixel (bpp) to full color 24-bits per pixel.
The format can also contain an image alpha channel which is typically 8 bits per pixel in size and is used to describe image transparency. BMP files can also optionally be compressed using a lossless compression algorithm meaning smaller files with no loss of image quality.
Full Name: Scalable Vector Graphics
Mime Type: image/svg+xml
Introduced by the W3C organisation in 2001 the SVG file format grew to become the standard web file format for vector based 2D images and is supported by the majority of modern web browsers. SVG files are Xml based text files containing 2D vector elements such as paths, simple shapes, colors and more.
The SVG format itself whilst primarily a vector format can include raster images as well as text. Due to its vector based format SVG files lend themselves very well to website company logos and icons. A compressed format of SVG also exists which uses the extension SVGZ and employs the GZIP compression algorithm.
