Is it possible to batch convert PNG to SVG on Windows 11 without losing color?

Iron Contributor

I am looking for suggestions on how to batch convert PNG images to SVG format without losing colors. I have tried several online conversion tools, but the colors of the converted SVG files consistently do not match the original PNG images. This color loss or distortion is a problem for my project.  I need a solution that can convert a large number of PNG files to SVG while accurately preserving all the original colors.

 

I would appreciate any suggestions for software or techniques that can ensure color fidelity during the conversion process.

Have you tried online tools? They can convert PNG to svg, but whether they keep the colors intact is hard to say.

If you've got access to Adobe Illustrator, it's pretty robust for this kind of task. You can use actions and batch processing to convert your PNG files to SVG on Windows 11. Illustrator generally does a good job of maintaining color fidelity.
Make sure to check the color profile of your PNG files before converting PNG to SVG. You can use software like Adobe Color or ColorSynth to analyze and adjust the color profiles.
If you're working with images that have transparent backgrounds, you may need to adjust the alpha channel settings in your chosen conversion tool to ensure accurate results.

  • Click Run to start to batch convert PNG to SVG.
ImageMagick is fully capable of converting PNG to SVG on Windows 11 computer, but due to its complexity it is not the best choice for beginners unless you are familiar with the command prompt. I have challenged the software several times, but failed. So it's best to turn to simple software to help you batch convert PNG to SVG.
