Example: simple loading and rendering

The following program loads hello.svg, renders it scaled to fit within 640x480 pixels, and writes a hello.png file.

Note the following:

  • rsvg_handle_render_document() will scale the document proportionally to fit the viewport you specify, and it will center the image within that viewport.

  • Librsvg does not paint a background color by default, so in the following example all unfilled areas of the SVG will appear as fully transparent. If you wish to have a specific background, fill the viewport area yourself before rendering the SVG.

Example 1. Load and render an SVG document as a PNG
