SVG files are not often found online. But if you work in the design field, you will probably come across a number of them. These files are vector files that can be scaled without loss of quality. Designers have tools to open and edit them. If you need to change the color of an SVG icon, but do not have an application for this task, use Norde Source. It is a free open source application that allows you to very easily change the color(s) of an SVG file and export it either as an SVG file or as a PNG, JPG or WEBP file.
Use Adobe Photoshop (for both Windows and Mac)
Unusual new graphics tools are constantly being introduced. But good old Adobe Photoshop, almost 30 years old, remains the gold standard. And chances are, even if you started with new tools like Pixelmator or Sketch, you still have a copy of Photoshop installed and use it quite often.
Below is a description of how you can easily recolor an icon with Adobe Photoshop :
Step 1 – Locate the desired icon in the Icon Finder and select the desired size. If you wish to use the icon in presentations, we recommend the largest size, 512 x 512px. Select the PNG format that is natively supported in Photoshop.
Step 2 – Open the Mixing Options… panel by right-clicking on the layer and selecting Mixing Options… button.
Step 3 – Click on Color Overlay and click on the color window to select your new color.
That’s it! Photoshop can be quite complex, but luckily it’s very easy to recolor an icon.
Converting an SVG image into an Office shape
By converting an image or SVG icon into an Office form, you can split the SVG file and edit individual parts of it. Converting the file is quite simple; just right-click on the SVG image in your document, workbook or presentation and select Convert to form from the pop-up menu that appears.
