How to Convert SVG to JPEG

By Chase Sackett

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files are commonly used for two-dimensional graphical applications and images, and can be zoomed or resized without losing quality. SVG is an open standard that can integrate with other standards, such as Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). The easiest way to convert an SVG file to Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) format is by using an online converter. You can also use graphic design software such as the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), a free image editor, to convert an SVG file to a JPEG.
