You love to use svg images but now you want to create your own svg image online.
When it comes to making svg files, I have tried several different software programs. My favorite program at the moment is Inkscape.
It’s an open-source program, meaning that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance the software and there are no fees to use it.
Inkscape is great but it’s a desktop program. You need to download the program to your computer. So you can’t use it online.
Until now! I found an online application that lets you use Inkscape online! Let me tell you, I was super excited when I found this application.
Finally, I can make and create svg files from any computer, anywhere. I don’t have to wait until I get home to use my laptop. Talk about freedom!

What programs create SVG files?
There are a lot of different programs and online apps to create svg files. I have tried a few of them and they all have different features but do pretty much the same thing.
The one svg editor that I really like is rollApp Inkscape.
With rollApp you can create your files online in a browser.
The window will open up in your browser. This will look like the same window you are used to seeing when you use the downloaded version of Inkscape.
How do I edit a SVG file?
Let’s say you have already drawn and designed svg files and you want to make a few changes.
Just like in the desktop version you can use the online app to edit an svg file.
All of the features like the shape, text, pen tool, and grouping and ungrouping are available in rollApp.
How do I save an image as SVG?
Using a file that you have saved in Dropbox or Google Drive is no problem. You can upload any image file type, like jpg, png or svg.
Once you have them uploaded and you can edit them and save them. There is also the possibility to save them to these and other cloud storage systems.
If you want to watch how it’s done, I show you a quick run-through of how to use the rollApp online editor in the video.
How do I download SVG files to Cricut?
After you save it, you can upload the svg to Cricut Design Space and start using it to make paper or vinyl crafts.
Now that you know about this easy way to make svg files online, where do you think you can use this app? If you need ideas for where to start, I have a list of 25 crafts to make with Cricut or Silhouette.
