How to Convert SVG to EMF


It's useful to understand the differences in the file formats when converting a SVG file to an EMF. You can convert the two formats back and forth using Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape, a free graphics program. Graphics can be either vector or raster images. Vector images are created using mathematical equations, while raster graphics are created from pixels, or dots of color. Scaleable Vector Graphic files are used for vector images. The Enhanced MetaFile format can contain both a vector image and a raster image in a single file.

  • Open the SVG in Adobe Illustrator or the free Inkscape vector graphics program.

  • Click on "Export" in Illustrator's File menu or "Save as" in Inkscape's File menu.

  • Choose "Enhanced MetaFile (*.EMF)" as the file type and click the "Save" button.

  • Choose whether to convert text to paths when prompted by Inkscape. Converting the text to paths preserves the appearance of fonts but makes text uneditable.
