Convert SVG to EMF via Java
Transform SVG into EMF using native Java APIs without needing any image editor or 3rd-party libraries.
How to Convert SVG to EMF Using Java
In order to convert SVG to EMF, we’ll use Aspose.Imaging for Java API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use image manipulation and conversion API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from Maven and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.
<repository> <id>AsposeJavaAPI</id> <name>Aspose Java API</name> <url>https://repository.aspose.com/repo/</url> </repository>
<dependency> <groupId>com.aspose</groupId> <artifactId>aspose-imaging</artifactId> <version>version of aspose-imaging API</version> <classifier>jdk16</classifier> </dependency>
Steps to Convert SVG to EMF via Java
Developers can easily load & convert SVG files to EMF in just a few lines of code.
- Load SVG file with Image.load method
- Create & set the instance of required subclass of ImageOptionsBase (e.g. BmpOptions, PngOptions, etc.)
- Call the Image.save method
- Pass file path with EMF extension & object of ImageOptionsBase class
Before running the conversion example code, make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- JDK 1.6 or higher is installed.

SVG What is SVG File Format
SVG files are Scalable Vector Graphics Files that use XML based text format for describing the appearance of image. The word Scalable refers to the fact that the SVG can be scaled to different sizes without losing any quality. Text based description of such files make them independent of resolution. It is one of the mostly used format for building website and print graphics in order to achieve scalability. The format can only be used for two-dimensional graphics though. SVG files can be viewed/opened in almost all modern browsers including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari.Read More
EMF What is EMF File Format
Enhanced metafile format (EMF) stores graphical images device-independently. Metafiles of EMF comprises of variable-length records in chronological order that can render the stored image after parsing on any output device. These variable-length records can be definitions of enclosed objects, commands for drawing, and graphics properties critical to render the image accurately. When a device opens an EMF metafile using its own graphics environment, the proportions, dimensions, colors and other graphic properties of original image remains same regardless of the opening device platform.Read More
