Imagemagick svg to jpg removes space when using åäö

Post by eleison »

I'm using imagemagick to convert svg files to jpg/png on server. Painly it doesn't render the jpg-image correct.

The problem occurs when I use åäö as first letter in the second word. Then it removes the space between the words. Example: jag är en ful älg -> jagär en ful älg.

Image sample: http://postimg.org/image/z3uhtvcwh/

This is a sample of svg code that renders wrong:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd">
<svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px"
 width="650px" height="650px" viewBox="0 0 650 650" enable-background="new 0 0 650 650" xml:space="preserve">
<text
transform="translate(197.08643,191.33691)"
id="text5"><tspan
x="-100"
y="0"
style="font-size:60px;fill:#000000;font-family:Arial">jag är jag är</tspan>
</text>
</svg>
Looking at the svg-image in an svg editor displays correct "jag är jag är". I have tried different fonts...

I call imagemagick with: convert 1.svg 1.jpg

Imagemagick version:

Code: Select all

It would appear that you have no delegates. You would certainly need the jpeg delegate installed to create a jpg output. Also you would be better off using either RSVG or Inkscape delegates for dealing with the svg data rather than IM internal one which I think also needs XML delegate.

What do you get from

convert -list configure

in the line starting with DELEGATES

What platform are you using?

How did you install IM -- from source or binary?

Thanks for quick reply!

DELEGATES bzlib freetype jpeg jp2 lcms png tiff x11 xml wmf zlib

Am I missing something?

When converting same svg with inkscape cmd i get no errors.

I'm using windows 7 64bit.

I did install from binary. This was the only version of IM i got to work on my Wampserver configuration for php. :/

I use IM v6.8.7-0 on Windows 7. Using IM internal SVG rendering I get your bad result. But when I use it with Inkscape (v0.48) I get the good result.

As a general rule, Inkscape works better than IM's internal rendering.

Thank you for letting me know! I was about to install newer version... Hum then I need to figure out how i call Inkscape through my PHP...
Gotta get some sleep now, be back tomorrow! Thanks

IM-6.8.0 didn't print a list of delegates (see magick/version.c). Obviously it was able to create jpeg output. The suggestion to use a different SVG renderer is a good one.

I do not know if Inkscape is listed as a delegate. But IM needs to know it is there. You can tell by

convert -list format

look at the line for SVG and see which delegate it is using.

I am not using Inkscape, so mine shows RSVG


SVG SVG rw+ Scalable Vector Graphics (RSVG 2.36.4)

If yours shows MSVG or XML, then you are using the IM internal renderer and need to install Inkscape where IM can find it.

I am a Mac user, but one of the windows users can tell you how to install it and link it to IM.

Can I link IM with Inkscape? That sounds like good news!

You are using the IM internal renderer for svg which is indicated by XML.

I cannot help on Windows. But one of the others can.

I typically install all my delegates first and then install IM from source on my unix/Mac.

But Windows may be operate differently for delegates. So wait for one of the Windows users to help.

The SVG convert turns out correct when you converting? If it does i'm going to sleep well tonight ><

I am planning to integrate librsvg in the windows build and make that the default instead of the internal svg handler. I hope I can spend some time on that this weekend.

Thank you! I use windows as my test environment for a php function I'm building. I'm not sure what kind of imagemagick build i will use on the final server. What kind of server and platform should i look for?

Thanks!

You might want to try it with Inkscape. For normal use in Windows:

1. Download Inkscape from http://inkscape.org/en/download/?lang=en and install.
2. Put the Inkscape directory in the system path. (eg "set PATH={inkscape's directory};%PATH%".)
3. IM will now use Inkscape. Check this by converting a SVG file to PNG with "-verbose". It should give the Inkscape command, and should not say MSVG or RSVG.

I don't use PHP, and don't know how to tell PHP to search for files in a given path. The easiest way may be to modify delegates.xml, giving the full path to inkscape.exe.
