SVG transformation (e_colorize,co_rgb)

Hello ✋

I want to colorize the SVG using e_colorize transformation.

For example I have SVG icon:
https://res.cloudinary.com/lastminute-contenthub/e_colorize,co_rgb:ff00ff/f_png/v1/DAM/SVG/Custom%20Icons/2021%20redesign/HP/shadow_FS

Here it works because I added the f_png transform. Without this transformation, an SVG is returned but without the changed colors e.g:
https://res.cloudinary.com/lastminute-contenthub/e_colorize,co_rgb:ff00ff/fl_sanitize/v1/DAM/SVG/Custom%20Icons/2021%20redesign/HP/shadow_FS

I found out that this can be done if the original image is raster (e.g. png) and then vectorized: https://res.cloudinary.com/lastminute-test/image/upload/e_colorize,co_rgb:ff00ff/e_vectorize/w_8.0/v1/shadow_FS -raster_iahcww.svg

Unfortunately I can't figure out yet whether it is possible to convert SVG to raster, color it and convert it back to SVG. Or maybe there is a better option?

In short, I want to transform an SVG icon by adding color and I want SVG in return.

I will be grateful for any help 🙏

    Hi there,

    To transform an SVG icon by adding color and return an SVG, here are the steps:
    1. Change the format to PNG using f_png.
    2. Implement the color change e_colorize,co_rgb:ff00ff

    3. Then change the file format to SVG by using e_vectorize,f_svg

    Here you can find the result of the chain transformation for your SCG file:

    Please review and let me know your feedback.
    Regards,

    Hi Wissam,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    Unfortunately this doesn't work. In your example, the source image is in PNG format.

    Here is real SVG where transformation doesn't work:
    https://res.cloudinary.com/lastminute-test/image/upload/f_png/e_colorize,co_rgb:ff00ff/e_vectorize,f_svg/fl_sanitize/w_8.0/v1/DAM/SVG/Custom%20Icons/2021%20redesign/HP/shadow_FS

    Hi there,

    I have tried the URL you have provided with the real SVG and added the extension .svg at the end of your URL and remove the flag fl_sanitize to download the SVG file.

    Here is the URL:

    https://res.cloudinary.com/lastminute-test/image/upload/e_colorize,co_rgb:ff00ff/f_png/e_vectorize,f_svg/w_8.0/v1/DAM/SVG/Custom%20Icons/2021%20redesign/HP/shadow_FS.svg

    I have added the SVG file attached here.

    Is it the requested behavior?

    Regards,
    Wissam

    Unfortunately no.

    "e_colorize,co_rgb:ff00ff" should colorize asset to blue, where above SVG looks almost the same as the original one. I expect something like that:
