Convert JPG to SVG


Photo file format best known and used worldwide, mainly due to the versatility and possibilities of allowing files to be made up to 10 times smaller than formats such as RAW or TIFF.

That is why every digital camera has the option to save in JPG, and every editing program allows you to convert photos to it.

When saving files in JPG, the camera reduces the amount of original colors in the captured image to a smaller palette.

The effect is exactly the same if the photograph is taken in another format and then converted using an editing program, that is, it goes through a compression process, inherent to the format and its native technology.

Before the need for web design, development, programming, usability arose, graphic designers insisted that the greater the weight of the image, for example 300 KB, the better the resolution and printing of the image.

Then, the need arises to make a transition from printed design to design on the web, and one of the surprises is that those gigantic images that were printed in full color, on the web needed to be compressed and reduced in weight, so that they easily load.

It is in this compression action, where the JPEG format plays an important role, because it allows to graduate the compression level of each one of the images in this way you can decide between a low quality image, which implies a smaller size in the file or an image with high quality, which represents a greater weight.


On the other hand, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) files, Resizable Vector Graphics, is a two-dimensional vector graphics format, both static and animated, in XML format.

SVG is an open standard developed since 1999 by the W3C.

This format became a recommendation of the W3C in September 2001, with which all browsers were renewed to support this format.

It is a format little known to many people but very useful to use, for example, in web environments.

Most people use bitmap files like JPG, or PNG if a transparent background is needed.

One of the advantages of the SVG format is that it is a vector image, which means that it can be scaled, it weighs a few megabytes and allows, unlike the standard formats (bitmap), a greater definition in reduced sizes.

The format is equivalent to that used in popular programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. Second, it is an open and compliant XML-based standard.

Third, SVG files allow us to use fonts with paths and also allow them to be included within the file itself in TrueType format, they also support CSS styles, in such a way that if we change the style of our website, it will also change within the file.
