Exporting diagrams as images

You can export diagrams as PNG or SVG images. For most common cases, we recommend using the PNG file format.

The PNG export functionality generates a pixel graphic (image). The export is useful if you want to embed diagrams into a document, spreadsheet, or presentation.

The SVG export functionality generates a vector graphic which is supported by most web browsers.

Proceed as follows to export a diagram as a PNG or SVG:

  • Select the diagram you want to export.

  • Click the Import / Export, then PNG (pixel graphics), or SVG (vector graphics) in the top drop-down menu of the Signavio Explorer.
