The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

How to upload an svg file

How to upload an svg file to the internet? Is there some kind of way I can upload an svg file I made into the internet, like for example an image hosting site? Thanks.

HI, if I understand you correctly you have an svg file to share and want to show a picture of the file when you upload it.....if this is correct then...

The svg file will not show as an image it needs to be converted to a jpg or a png.  You can either do a screen capture of the design while it is on the Inkscape screen, or use file/export bitmap to convert it to a png.  You now have two files  an svg and a png.

If you "attach" or "upload" both files to the share site the png will show up as a viewable image and the svg file will be a link to download.

Try it here and see if it works for you.

I'll be around today for followup if you need more help,.
