Raster to SVG Converter

Raster image formats use pixels to store an image, and bitmap (BMP) is one kind of raster image formats. Patterns of a raster image will lose their clarity when the image is magnified. A vector image format is different from a raster image format, which uses control points and paths to store an image. Raster to SVG Converter is a tool designed for converting images of raster to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics).

Raster to SVG Converter is free to download and evaluate. This application is designed for MS-DOS interface, and you can instantly run the application after unpack it into your hard disk.


Please open a MS-DOS command prompt window before running the application. Follow menu path [start] [Run] input "cmd" press [OK]. In the MS-DOS command prompt window, you can run the application by inputting its path and name. However, for easy use, you can set the current path of the MS-DOS command prompt window to the one where the converter is stored.


You can use the following command line to convert a raster bitmap image to SVG,
>Raster2Vector raster.bmp vector.svg .


In the command line, "Raster2Vector" is the name of the executable file of the application. The command line converts "raster.bmp" to "vector.svg", from BMP to SVG.
The following two figures are the source raster BMP image and the converted target SVG image.

raster BMP image

Zoom in the BMP image above, you will find that the curves will be serrated when the image is magnified.

vector SVG image

For the second image which is vector, you can see that the curves remain smooth when the image is magnified.

The application is designed for MS-DOS interface, so you can run it within a batch script. If you need to run the application on a server, please buy a server license. You can also redistribute the application within your developed software via buying a developer license.
