Convert SVG to PNG Without Antialiasing
Someone on Slashdot asked if there was any way to convert SVG vector graphics files to PNG raster graphics files without having fixed width lines blurred through the use of antialiasing.
The ImageMagick convert untility provides many useful image conversion tools and will convert from SVG to PNG. The way that convert deals with antialiasing is a little confusing however. The person who asked the question stated that they had already turned off antialiasing by calling:
$ convert -antialias a.svg a.png
Unfortunately "-antialias" turns antialiasing on not off. To turn antialiasing off you need to use "+antialias" e.g.:
$ convert +antialias a.svg a.png
Have you ever had any problems converting SVG files to PNG?
I hope that that clarifies a point of confusion, if you have any comments please let me know and if you have any other questions which you'd like me to answer for free please send them to Ben Dash at firstname.lastname@example.org
