PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.

SVG Image Format

SVG Converter

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is a file format developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in 1999, in conjunction with Adobe Systems. This file format is used to create vector-based graphics that can be scaled to any size without losing quality. SVG files use an XML text-based format that details how the image should appear on screen. This instruction allows the image to be scaled up or down without impacting the quality of the graphic, and makes SVG great for web graphics, logos, icons, diagrams and other illustrations.

Because the SVG file format consistently retains image quality, it’s used widely online and for viewing images across various monitors, browsers, and electronic devices. However, older browsers can have problems supporting this file type. To open an SVG file, you can use applications that support vector graphics such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, Inkscape, and GIMP.

Frequently asked questions

If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.

One of the quickest ways of turning a PDF into an SVG is to use file conversion software or an online tool like Zamzar. Simply upload your PDF to Zamzar’s website, select ‘SVG’, then ‘Convert Now’ and ‘Download’.

If you have Adobe Illustrator, you can also use that to open your PDF, and then export the project as a SVG file. You will need to specify the page of your PDF that you want to save, if there are multiple pages. However, Zamzar will create an SVG for every page – making it easier to convert a whole book.

PDFs aren’t compatible with Cricut, but it’s easy to convert from PDF to SVG with Zamzar or another online file converter. Just upload your PDF document to the tool on Zamzar’s website, select to convert to SVG, and then download your new file.

With Zamzar, you will get an SVG file for every page of the document, so it’s really convenient if you have a PDF book of Cricut patterns to convert. It’s also possible to convert files with Adobe Illustrator, but you would need a subscription, and to open and resave every page of the document.

One of the best PDF to SVG converters is the free tool on Zamzar’s website. You can convert files without installing extra software or apps, and for most users it’s free. Simply upload a PDF to Zamzar’s three-step tool, select to convert it to SVG format, and then download. You will get an SVG image file for every page of the PDF document that you can then save, edit, and use.

Adobe Illustrator is another alternative, but you would need to export each page of the PDF one by one.

You can create SVG images with graphic design software like Adobe Illustrator, but it’s also easy to make them by converting files with sites like Zamzar. Just upload an image or PDF file to the three-step tool on Zamzar’s website, select SVG as the format to convert it to, and then download your new image file. Because Zamzar is web-based, there’s no need to install anything extra, and you can also convert files without a subscription.

File conversion tools such as Zamzar are a quick way of converting a PDF to SVG on your laptop. You don’t need to install any extra software or apps and it works on both laptops and mobiles. Just upload your PDF file, select ‘SVG’, and then ‘Convert Now’. You’ll then be able to download an SVG image for every page of the PDF document, which makes it convenient for patterns for Cricut machines and similar devices.
