We describe the source code for reading SVG from a file and then converting SVG to PNG with default saving options. Please load SVG from the local file system, select the output format and run the example. You will immediately get the result as a separate file.

Please visit our Documentation to learn more about using Aspose.SVG API conversion functions and to consider C# examples for the most common SVG conversion scenarios. In the documentation article Convert SVG to Image , you can consider C# examples of how to convert SVG to images in different ways. Let’s consider some of them:

Steps to Convert SVG to PNG using ConvertSVG() Method

  1. Load an SVG file using one of the SVGDocument() constructors of the SVGDocument class.
  2. Create a new ImageSaveOptions object. By default, the Format property is PNG.
  3. Use the ConvertSVG() method to save SVG as a PNG image. You need to pass the SVGDocument, ImageSaveOptions, and output file path to the ConvertSVG() method.
  4. The PNG file will be saved to the specified path.

Steps to Convert SVG to PNG using RenderTo() Method

  1. Initialize SVGDocument with your SVG file.
  2. Create an object of the ImageRenderingOptions class. Use the ImageRenderingOptions() constructor and specify the Format property of the document.
  3. Initialize ImageDevice class and specify the output file name to render.
  4. Call RenderTo() method & pass the instance of the ImageDevice.

Convert SVG to PNG

using (var document = new SVGDocument("input.svg"))
	var options = new ImageRenderingOptions(ImageFormat.Png);
	using (IDevice device = new ImageDevice(options, "output.png"))
