Export png images of multiple dimensions using inkscape command line on Windows


Many times for our applications we need *.png of different dimensions. Using Inkscape, we can export png of desired dimension. But this is a tedious and repetitive task. In this post, I will tell how to use InkScape command line options to automate this process.

You can get idea about Inkscape command line options from these links

  2. how-to.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_use_Inkscape_in_commandline_mode 

Following command will export svg to a .png of 36X36

%inkscape.exe% "z -f  %SVG file path% -e %exported file path% -D -w 36 -h 36"

I have created a simple application which can be helpful in exporting SVG to png of multiple dimensions.
You can download the application from here
