Converting SVG to PNG maintaining transparency

Post by shermanf »

Hi Everybody!

I was hoping someone could help me...

I am converting a bunch of SVG files to PNG..

they all are converting fine, but on the SVG images that are transparent, the converted PNG files
are showing the checkerboard background..

Can anyone tell me how to convert transparent SVG files to PNG files while retaining the transparent background??


THANKS so much for the great software and any help from anyone!


Have a great day :D

Hello.

I'm relaunching this post as I have the exact same problem and can help to investigate it if needed.

I'm joining three example files, the original, the result, and the xbs saved by XnConvert

Thank you.
