LaTeX: Include and Scale SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) Image

Here is a step-by-step guide on including and scaling SVG image on LaTeX.

1) Download and install Inkscape: https://inkscape.org/en/download/

This will create two new files named image.pdf and image.pdf_tex.

3) Include the image in LaTeX:

You can see that I have defined \svgwidth which is used for scaling the SVG image. More about Scaling SVG image is written below:

Scaling SVG image

You can scale the image by defining \svgwidth or by including calc package.

You have to define \svgwidth before \input command:

If you are using calc package, then you have to include the calc package in the preamble and then define \svgscale.
