Importing SVG (or AI) Vector Graphic into Prezi NEXT


#1

Hi :wink:
As i often was asked in my workshops “How can i import my own vector graphic images into Prezi?” the answer might be also from interest for this community:

The direct importing of a SVG graphic via “Insert|Image” might sometimes work for SVG files or lead to an error message. Either way - the result is not satisfying as the image got converted to pixel graphic during the import.

If you want to insert a vector graphic file (i tried out SVG and AI) you have to take some prior actions, then it works like a charm (even with a BASIC account).

A Prezi (with a step-by-step - tutorial video included) can be found here: https://prezi.com/p/1u10fr5rmsdl/

I hope thisworkaround fulfills your expecations! Feel free to share and drop me a line the comment section of my Prezi with your experiences.

I was looking forward as I found your tips for conversion some time ago (though on another site). Unfortunately I do not own MS Office and none of the popular clouds cloudconvert.com requires. So I tried to find alternative no-cost solutions with as little effort as possible.

https://www.coolutils.com/online/SVG-to-PDF#
Directly converts uploaded SVG to downloadable PDF, easy to use

https://inkscape.org/en/
Vector graphics software, frightening number of possibilities

I’m not the brightest star in the sky of vector artists, but I recommend Inkscape. With a little luck you only need two clicks to success: Load (SVG), save as PDF.
Compared to the online converter, Inkscape creates typically small files in size, IMHO coolutils.com in reality wraps bitmaps into a PDF container, recognizable that there exists a limit in zooming those files.
