How to convert jpg or png to SVG

To use SVG in android there are a number of ways but the one i used was to create a vector of a SVG and then putting that into a drawable. It sounds straightforward but it was not for me, had to solve some pesky issues before i got it working.

First, convert your png or jpg to SVG using any online tool, you can find it on google.
Then create a vector drawable with that SVG by going to below link:


Now put that xml in your drawable folder and then you can use that in your ImageView resource.
