How do I export a Photoshop image as an SVG and save as an image to upload in Indesign? It keeps saving as an Internet Explorer code, not an image I can upload in other CC files.
It successfully saves as an SVG finally, but each time I go to either import or place it just gives me a code. I don't know where to place code in Indesign yet, and I just want to be able to have an svg image on file.
Here are the steps that show how an image be saved as SVG from photoshop :http://creativedroplets.com/generate-svg-with-photoshop-cc-beta/
Also I would recommend Adobe Illustrator for SVG images.
As it comes to your second query of InDesign.
Click File-> Place and check the import options
Now choose your SVG file, it will give you the import options of that SVG image.
I've seen that link for the Photoshop 2014 update! However, my 2015 one doesn't have the "extract assets" options; also when I tried to do this before the update it still saved my image as a code, not an actual image
The Extract Assets thing got changed in CC2015. Now it's File > Export > Quick Export as [file format]. The default setting is PNG. To get it to be SVG, you have to go to Edit > Preferences > Export... and choose between PNG, JPG, PNG-8, GIF or SVG. Counterintuitive? Well, uh, hmmm.
I don't have a copy of InDesign, but I created a SVG and threw it into Inkscape. It opened properly.
I haven't heard on Inkscape but will look into it, but surely there has to be a way to do this on Adobe that I'm just missing? Still new to CC so I thought I'd ask on here.
I'm sorry, I might not be making my issue clear. I have already changed my export preferences/quick export to SVG, that part is successful, but when I go to import this SVG file into Indesign, it just gives me the code to paste/place in, not the actual image. Is there a way within Adobe CC to turn this code into the actual image to copy/paste in?
Would you be able to share that SVG image so that we can try that at our end.
I really should keep out of this because this is outside my area of competency (ha!), but apparently the only way you can import/place a SVG in InDesign is to first open it in Illustrator and convert it to AI or PDF and then import it into InDesign.
The link dates from 2012, but I don't think the situation has changed.
Btw, Inkscape is the open source equivalent of Illustrator; they're both for vector graphics. Mind, I'm not pimping for non-Adobe products, it's just that I do so little vector work I can't really justify the expense of Illustrator.
In Photoshop you can save an image as an svg by going to File > Export > Export As. Under file settings choose svg, then Export All.
Am trying to export a Photoshop Logo as an SVG. It not shwoing SVG option at Export As. The image is not clear when i save as PNG. [Spam link removed by moderator] Here is the logo that I upload.
It successfully saves as PNG which I also uploaded [Spam link removed by moderator] Here as the platform logo. I don't know how to get my file saved as SVG. I just want to be able to have an svg image on file.
