Nice post. Do you know any tools to convert . png or jpg to svg?

Generally, there aren’t any. Inkscape can display the image and then you trace it drawing vectors. That is the best way IMO. PNG and jpg typically store pixels so there is no concept of a circle, for instance.

Be careful though with converting .jpg or .png files to .svg, converting more complex images (like an actual picture) to .svg could result on a .svg file bigger than the original .jpg or .png file.
