SVG and clipping path

Post by JeroenOnline » 2019-08-13T10:27:15-07:00

Hello,

I'm facing trouble with the php imagick conversion of an svg to png. The clippingmask deletes the image completely and replaces it with a black color. When I try the same conversion in say inkscape it works just fine, anybody can help me with this?

Works fine for me using IM 6.9.10.60 Q16 Mac OSX with Inkscape as the SVG renderer from command line. I see a picture of a baby.

It is likely your SVG renderer. There are 3 possible: ImageMagick default MSVG/XML, RSVG delegate, Inkscape. The latter are better than MSVG. Check which you are using with ImageMagick on Imagick. Or be sure you have a current version of ImageMagick and install Inkscape. ImageMagick will use that if it is found.

Thanks for the very quick response, how can I check from PHP wich renderer I'm using? And even better how can I cange which one is being used.

By the way in addition this is the code I use in PHP to create the jpg.

Code: Select all

        $image = new Imagick();
        $image->readImage(storage_path('Geboortekaartje-Octo-1.svg'));
        $image->setImageFormat('jpg');

        file_put_contents(storage_path('Geboortekaartje-Octo-1.jpg'), $image);
And the information from the imagick module used.

Sorry, I am not an expert no Imagick. But if you install Inkscape on the system, then ImageMagick will use it automatically, if it can find Inkscape. The only way to know which renderer is likely to use -verbose in the command line. So use PHP exec() with the command line convert to process your svg file including -verbose in the command line.

Allright thank you I just runned the command manually from the command line and it gave me "Aborted" back no further output is my command wrong?

Code: Select all

convert testimage.svg test.png
with the verbose flag

Code: Select all

convert testimage.svg test.png -verbose
gave me aborted aswell.

try

Code: Select all

convert -verbose testimage.svg test.png
But if

Code: Select all

convert testimage.svg test.png
aborts, then it would seem that something is wrong with your ImageMagick version install.

What do you get from

Code: Select all

convert -version
If that works, then what do you get for the line starting with SVG in the following result:

Code: Select all

convert -list format

The last argument should be the output filename. Not "-verbose" or anything else. Try:

Code: Select all

convert -verbose testimage.svg test.png

This suggests Inkscape isn't working properly. Can you run Inkscape interactively? If so, can Inkscape read that SVG and display it? Can you run that Inkscape command from the command line?

Your version on IM creates the Inkscape command to output an EPS file, so this also needs Ghostscript. So it could be a problem with Ghostscript. Is that also installed?

My issue seems to be related to this issue: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape/issues/294. I'll do some further investigation.

Try removing and upgrading Inkscape. Be sure it install with no errors and has all needed delegates installed for it.
