Can an SVG vector graphic be converted to a PNG file format for use in Fireworks?

I'd recommend downloading Inkscape, which is the freeware equivalent of Illustrator. It can export svg to png, and it uses SVG as its native image format.

I'm going to guess you're on Windows, but on Linux I use librsvg2-bin.

Then use rsvg-convert -o output.png input.svg

A quick google search brought me this if you're only going to be able to use Windows:

  1. open the SVG file with IE
  2. right click the picture in the IE web page
  3. 'save as' PNG file
