Learn How To Convert SVG to PNG With DoNotPay
Scalable Vector Graphics—or SVG—is a vector image format used primarily for two-dimensional graphics, such as logos, that need to scale well when enlarged. PNG, on the other hand, is typically used for bitmap images. Converting an SVG into a PNG is a common occurrence when you want to include the logo with a transparent background into other publications, such as a blog post.
In an SVG file, the image size is determined by a system of coordinates used in the SVG code, and it's possible to represent a rectangular area in a shape that is a circle or a polygon. In PNG files, there are no geometric shapes, but there are rectangular areas represented by blocks of pixels whose edges have no data because they have been deliberately left blank.
