Convert your bitmap PNG file to a high quality vector SVG file

Create SVG vector files with our easy-to-use, fast, and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a PNG file and, from this, create a vector-based SVG file that you can then download and edit/use within vector file editors or use for high-definition printing applications. To convert your PNG, simply click the Upload a file... button and select your image. Once selected, you will be able to set various options to control the generated vector file.

Our tool has options to help you make the perfect SVG from your PNG file. We have pre-defined settings for Icons, Logos, and Photos, as well as customizable settings that allow you to specify background color removal, hole reduction, and controlling how similar colors are merged. On top of this, our PNG to SVG tool supports batch conversions, with up to 25 PNG files being uploaded in a single operation.

PNG to SVG Conversion Options


The Mode setting is used by the tool to inform it of the best way to vectorize the image by providing it with clues as to the type of image being submitted. The Auto mode attempts to find the most suitable settings for the image uploaded. There are, however, other options to help fine-tune this process, which we explain in more detail in the Tool Options section below.

Hole Reduction

With this setting, it is possible to reduce the inclusion of small holes within the final vector file caused by small, contrasting areas of the source PNG file, which can be useful in situations where the source image has not been optimized for use with the tool.

Merge Similar Colors

Use this value to merge similar colors; this is useful if the image is of low quality. A higher number can help reduce the effects of anti-aliasing in the PNG image.

Convert the Background Color to Transparent

When this setting is enabled, the PNG to SVG vectorizer tool will apply a transparent background to the resulting SVG file. Further options below help assist the tool in identifying the background color in the source PNG file.

Auto Detect Background Color

When this setting is enabled, the vectorizer tool will attempt to automatically determine the background color of the PNG image file and replace it with transparency in the final SVG file.

Specify Color #

If your source PNG image has a background color that our tool cannot identify, then you may specify the color manually here in the form of its hex color code.

How accurate is the PNG to SVG conversion?

We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.

Is it safe to convert my PNG to SVG on

Yes, of course! We do not store the PNG file you submit to us. The resulting SVG file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert my PNG to SVG on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our PNG 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.

What if I am using an Ad Blocker, will that affect things?

Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our PNG conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images, which can be highly compressed by the use of 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-1990s 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.

Introduced by the W3C organization 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, while primarily a vector format, can include raster images as well as text. Due to their 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.

PNG Image to Vector SVG, How Does It Work?

Our tool analyzes your PNG file for shapes, outlines, and text, which it then recreates in a vector format. Raster images (Bitmaps) such as PNG can store a lot of detail; however, for high-definition tasks such as printing, a vector-based format such as SVG is better suited due to the ability to enlarge the file without losing any detail, something that cannot be done with the PNG format files.

Options are available to specify or 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.
