PDF to SVG Converter
This free online PDF converter allows you to save a PDF document as a set of separate SVG images, ensuring better image quality and size than any other PDF to image converters.
PDF and SVG - when working with graphics, you will have to face the question: “Which format is better suited for me?”. However, they are very different. And which one is better depends only on the job set.
What is PDF?
PDF (“Portable Document Format”) is a cross-platform open format of electronic documents. Based on its name, the representation of documents in electronic form is its initial task. The format is unique for storing information - you can put a password on PDF files, it includes an electronic signature mechanism, it can store both bitmaps and vector images, it is supported by all modern devices and it is easy to share with other users. This format is actively used in printing, since most modern equipment allows you to do this without any additional software. So far, only advantages. But there is a catch. The PDF format is more focused on saving and sharing documents in their original form. And if software for viewing these files is most likely already available on your devices, you’ll probably need something more for editing.
Why Should You Convert to SVG?
SVG (“Scalable Vector Graphics”) is a vector graphic format. Just like PDF, it supports the presence of text and the opportunity to print, but if PDF is the standard in the world of typography, SVG is the standard in the world of digital graphics. PDF is well suited for printing work in the future, but if the work remains in digital format, it is better to use SVG. It provides you more tools for creativity. Unlike PDF, it supports transparency, animation, and, most importantly, SVG is code. This means that parameters such as color and shape can be changed directly in the editor, thus greatly simplifying your work. This format is better suited for working with graphics itself. But keep in mind that the size of SVG files grows in proportion to the number of details in the image.
How to Convert?
