Different output from converting SVG file provided via StringIO and filename

Post by dcunhas » 2016-06-17T10:42:11-07:00

I was doing some conversions to figure out the Python Wand API and I noticed that when I provide the same SVG string two different ways, I get two different images.
My code is:

Code: Select all

from wand.image import Image
import StringIO
import os

print os.environ['MAGICK_HOME']

svg = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"><svg version="1.1" id="Layer_1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px" xml:space="preserve" height="241"  width="386"><g xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" fill="none" stroke="none" stroke-width="none" stroke-linecap="butt" stroke-linejoin="miter" stroke-miterlimit="10" stroke-dasharray="" stroke-dashoffset="0" font-family="sans-serif" font-weight="normal" font-size="12" text-anchor="start" mix-blend-mode="normal"><path d="M165.2135,102.5625c0,-8.99478 7.29171,-16.2865 16.2865,-16.2865c8.99478,0 16.2865,7.29171 16.2865,16.2865c0,8.99478 -7.29171,16.2865 -16.2865,16.2865c-8.99478,0 -16.2865,-7.29171 -16.2865,-16.2865z" fill="#808080" stroke="#ffff00" stroke-width="3" opacity="0.3"/></g></svg>'

st = StringIO.StringIO(svg)

with Image(filename='C:/Users/Sandeep/temp/test.svg', format='svg') as img:

with Image(file=st, format='svg') as img:
s.png and t.png (the two output files) show different images. Furthermore, they have different file sizes (s.png is 2.54 KB and t.png is 3.12 KB). I verified that the file contents are the same as the contents of the string above, so any idea what's going on? I originally posted this on the Wand's Github page but was referred here.
