    How to convert a image (.bmp, .jpg, etc) file to .svg file?

    hi to everyone,

    I am now has a list of images (mostly in bitmap form), which will be use to create theme for Symbian S60 3rd edition cell phone.

    To create a theme, i need to create .mif file, which using a list of .svg files. (correct me if i'm wrong).

    My main problem is, what should i do, in order to convert the images to .svg file, without the usage of 3rd party application like "illustrator" or "inkscape".

    Is there any way for me to do it, by using the 3rd Edition FP1 SDK (.exe inside epoc32)??

    Or perhaps who has any idea on using other tool like java toolkit (e.g. batik svg toolkit, http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/batik/index.html) ?

    For Your Information, i notice that carbide.ui did include some .jar files called "batik-svg-dom.jar" and "batik-svggen.jar". So i suspect carbide.ui do use this .jar file to generate .svg files from user's images.

    Awaiting anyone who keen in make contribution,

    My Graphics team tols me that you actually can not convert them to SVG, or at least the end product is noting like a real scalable SVG image, since SVG's are done using vecto graphics and at least they didn't know any tools that could actually convert a pixel-image to a vector-image. I have though ried my self that and end up with a SVG file that embedded a JPG inside it, anyway didn't produce any good results, thus would really recommend doing all images again or simply just using MBM's with old images..
