color-rendering

« SVG Attribute reference home

The color-rendering attribute provides a hint to the SVG user agent about how to optimize its color interpolation and compositing operations.

color-rendering takes precedence over color-interpolation-filters. For example, assume color-rendering: optimizeSpeed and color-interpolation-filters: linearRGB. In this case, the SVG user agent should perform color operations in a way that optimizes performance, which might mean sacrificing the color interpolation precision as specified by color-interpolation-filters: linearRGB.

As a presentation attribute, it also can be used as a property directly inside a CSS stylesheet, see css color-rendering for further information

Usage context

Categories Presentation attribute
Value auto | optimizeSpeed | optimizeQuality | inherit
Animatable Yes
Normative document SVG 1.1 (2nd Edition)
auto
Indicates that the user agent shall make appropriate tradeoffs to balance speed and quality, but quality shall be given more importance than speed.
optimizeSpeed
Indicates that the user agent shall emphasize rendering speed over quality. For RGB display devices, this option will sometimes cause the user agent to perform color interpolation and compositing in the device RGB color space.
optimizeQuality
Indicates that the user agent shall emphasize quality over rendering speed.
