Convert SVGZ to PNG

A file with .svgz extension is a compressed version of Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG) file. It is compressed with gzip compression and contains data in XML format. SVGZ files support transparency, gradients, animations, and filters. SVGZ files are smaller in size as compared to the default SVG files and this reduced file size helps transfer the graphics files.

Steps to convert SVGZ to PNG in C#

GroupDocs.Conversion allows developers to convert the SVGZ file to PNG format in an easy and intuitive way just using a few lines of code as described below:

  • Create an instance of Converter class and pass source SVGZ file path as a constructor parameter. You may specify absolute or relative file path as per your requirements.
  • Declare SavePageStream delegate, which should provide a stream to store converted page of SVGZ document.
  • Create an instance of ImageConvertOptions class and set Format property to GroupDocs.Conversion.FileTypes.ImageFileType.Png.
  • Call Converter class Convert method and pass the filename for the converted PNG file and the ImageConvertOptions object from the previous step as parameters.
// Load the source SVGZ file
using (Converter converter = new Converter("sample.svgz"))
{
    string outputFileTemplate = Path.Combine(outputFolder, "converted-page-{0}.png");
    GroupDocs.Conversion.Contracts.SavePageStream getPageStream = page => new FileStream(string.Format(outputFileTemplate, page), FileMode.Create);

    // Set the convert options for PNG format
    var options = new ImageConvertOptions { Format = GroupDocs.Conversion.FileTypes.ImageFileType.Png };   
    // Convert to PNG format
    converter.Convert(getPageStream, options);
}
