I am attempting to generate a complex image in SVG format and then using it to generate PNG versions of the image at many different sizes (much smaller and much bigger). There may also be a use for the original SVG file in the future.
My challenge is that I have a set of icons that are already in SVG format that I want to embed into the larger main image that I am generating.
I have attempted to do this with Batik and I understand how to bring the icon SVG files into the Graphics2D environment using an ImageTranscoder. However this process is rasterizing the SVG files and turning them into a BufferedImage.
The result is that when I render the main image at larger dimensions, the icons look horrible while the rest of the image is crisp.
Is there a way to achieve what I need using JFreeSVG?
I am wondering if there is a way to simply create a link to the icon files instead of embedding them as one possible solution? Happy to try other solutions as well though.
