6 Useful SVG Tools for Enhanced Graphics

Saurabh Tiwary | 26th April 2017

UI Designers are fond of Scalable Vector Graphics. SVGs are gaining popularity in the field of web and mobile app UI design these days. Well-known tools such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape are highly employed to create SVG. 

SVG Tools

However, talking especially about the web design, a good rule of thumb is to optimize them for lighter results before incorporating them to the site application.

Here, I will walk you through several useful tools to work with SVG tools quickly and efficiently. Most of the tools that I will be talking about are the online tools that can be used for optimization, conversion, making patterns, and more.


#1 b64

b64 is a one of the very simple svg tools which is used to optimize image files and then convert them into a base64 format. You can easily drop your SVG images in any format viz. JPG and PNG etc. and then fetch the CSS using base64 background-image as the output.


Exported SVG may sometimes contain unnecessary information that can be erased without affecting the rendering result of the SVG. If you need to erase editor metadata, any comments or hidden elements within the SVG files, SVGO is a great way to go.


#3 SVG to PNG converter

If you want to export your SVG files into a PNG format without using applications like Illustrator, SVG to PNG Converter tool can be a great way to go. This tool can be handy if you want to get image outputs in the PNG format and also PNG Base64 data URI if needed.

Functional animations are widely used in websites nowadays. SVG circus is a useful tool that allows you to create animations easily. This handy tool lets you create your customized loaders, spinners, or anything similar by making use of looped animation.


#5 Plain Pattern

Most of the time, your design projects needs several design patterns to be used on the site or app. Creating patterns with SVG has never been easier or more fun. You just need to upload your own image, scale down or modify the spacing, rotate vertically or horizontally and add color unless you get a beautiful pattern. Once you are done, you can preview the design pattern and download it.


#6 SVG Morpheous

SVG Morpheous is a  very useful JavaScript library that helps you in morphing an SVG icon from one shape to other. Moreover, you can assign the duration of transition animations, easing effects and also the rotation direction.
