Convert your PNG file to EMF

Create vector files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file and from this, create a vector-based EMF (Windows Enhanced Metafile) 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 PNG 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.

Description

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.

PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.

Description

The EMF file format is the successor to the legacy WMF image format capable of storing both two-dimensional raster and vector graphics. The WMF format was introduced by Microsoft in 1992 as part of the Windows 3 SDK and has evolved over time with new features until being replaced by the EMF format.

EMF files contain 32-bit data and are similar in nature to SVG files in that they can store both raster and vector image data. The format is used within versions of Microsoft Office and can be opened with a limited number of graphics applications.
