image conversion

Newbie here, and trying to wade through this stuff, and it's not coming too quickly. I'm just trying to take svg data I already have and turn it around into png/pdf/jpg files. Surely this is not terribly difficult. Any help appreciated!

Matplotlib is probably not what you want. For rasterized conversions,
there is ImageMagick. Most Linux distros come with 'convert' that you
can use at the command line. Inkscape is good for visual editing of
vector data.

HTH!

That's what I thought at first too, but imagemagick/graphicsmagick aren't able to do the work. I've found something else to use in the meantime. Thanks,
Rob

It would not be off topic to share your solution with the list.

Ah, imagemagick/graphicsmagick couldn't successfully parse svg, so no conversion was possible. I wound up looking at batik, a java-based solution, which is not fast, but has the benefit of actually working.

You could save an additional pdf version with your matplotlib code and convert that with imagemagick.
