Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file and from this, create a new image saved in the PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your SVG to PNG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your SVG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the SVG to PNG conversion has completed, you can download your PNG file straight away.
We aim to process all SVG to PNG 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 SVG file you submit to us. The resulting PNG file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our SVG to PNG tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

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.
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.
