How to upload an svg file
« on: May 20, 2013, 04:11:35 AM »
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,.
