Convert NEF to SVG online, for free.
Nikon Electronic Format (NEF) is a proprietary file format for Nikon cameras. It is a RAW file format, which means that it includes all of the information about the image captured by the camera’s sensor, such as data about the camera used to take the photo and the settings that were in place when it was taken. NEF files are not compressed and are often referred to as digital negatives.
A NEF file must be transferred from a Nikon camera to a computer for viewing and editing. Since NEF is proprietary to Nikon, the best program to use for opening and editing a NEF is Nikon’s Capture NX2 or a post-processing software like Adobe Lightroom.
Converting a NEF file to a non-proprietary format is as simple as opening it in an image-viewing application and saving it as a TIFF, JPG, PNG, GIF, PSD, or any other popular format. If you do not have access to programs that can open NEF files, we recommend converting them via our NEF to JPG tool. However, NEF files are meant to be post-processed first before converting to JPG.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a resolution-independent, open-standard file format. It is based on Extensible Markup Language (XML), uses vector graphics, and supports limited animation. The main benefit of using an SVG file is, as the name implies, its scalability. This file type can be resized without a loss in image quality. In addition, SVG is unique in that it is not an image format. Instead, it is an XML-based standard that provides information for creating two-dimensional vector images.
SVG files open readily in most web browsers, such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge. In addition, since SVG is an XML file, you can view the XML-associated text in any common text editor, such as Windows Notepad or Brackets for macOS.
It is possible to use Adobe programs for opening and editing SVG files. Just be sure to install the SVG Kit for Adobe Creative Suite plug-in first. Converting SVG files is possible with the aid of a few online tools. For conversion to non-vector file types, try our SVG to GIF or SVG to PDF tools. To convert to vector files like SVG into JPG, try our SVG to JPG or SVG to PNG tools.
