Convert JPG to SVG In Inkscape
Converting a JPG image into an SVG file can be a nightmare, but don’t fret. We will give you some useful tips on how to convert JPG to SVG using Inkscape—one of the most popular vector designing apps that is free for all users and runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac.
We’ll also show you a fast, easy, simple way to convert images into scalable vector graphics—With DoNotPay!
Most people convert JPG files to SVG so that they can use their images in printable, interactive web pages. Unlike raster formats seen in JPG, GIF, and PNG, an SVG image remains crisp and clear at any resolution or size. JPG files lose sharpness when they are magnified to larger sizes.

Unlike bitmap graphics editors such as Gimp and Photoshop, Inkscape stores and displays vector images that contain mathematical descriptions of the shapes and objects that make up the image rather than containing actual rasterized pixels.
You should take the following steps to convert JPG files to SVG using Inkscape:
- Launch Inkscape and start a new project
- Import the JPG file you want to convert
- Resize the image to fit your page—Holding down Ctrl while changing the size will retain the aspect ratio
- Click on Path on the top toolbar and select Trace Bitmap
- Select specific settings after the Trace Bitmap box pops up
- Check the box next to Live Preview to check your image
- Select OK if you are happy with the image and close the pop-up window
Your new SVG image will be placed on top of the old one, so drag it off the original and then delete the old JPG image. Once you do this, click File, then Save As, name the file and save it as Inkscape SVG.
If the whole process seems too complicated, you can always opt for one of the online file converters.
JPG to SVG converters available online are easier to use for people who don’t have any experience with programs like Inkscape. Some free online converters you may use to convert JPG to SVG are listed in the table below:

While free online converters are simpler than a tool like Inscape, they’re both limited in capability, and come with various hidden dangers and drawbacks.
Some of the disadvantages of using an online JPG to SVG converter are:
- Inconsistent image quality
- Inability to edit the SVG file afterward
- Loss of all transparency information from JPG
- Size limitations
The risk of downloading malware or viruses is the most serious issue with online converters. A free online file converter can sound like a good deal, but skilled cybercriminals are using this as an opportunity to distribute malware and steal your data.
It is also recommended to use a reputable company or service instead of relying on free services or converter tools found in search engine results pages because they may not provide adequate security measures to protect your files from hackers.
