Conversion of LaTeX to PNG

Postby pfeldman on Sun Feb 10th, 2013

I would like to convert LaTeX formulas into PNG images (for use in HTML documents). Can this be done using MiKTeX? If not, is there a recommended tool for doing this?

In principal this is possible by the standalone class. With the convert option (and some others) the output will directly be converted to PNG (with transparency). For the requirements (e.g. ImageMagick) and more details please refer to the class manual.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[
  11pt,
  border=1pt,
  convert
]{standalone}

\begin{document}
  $E=mc^2$
\end{document
}

The output is attached.

But perhaps something like MathJax is more suitable for HTML.

Hi,

why don't you use this online-tool?

http://frog.isima.fr/bruno/share/tex2png/

the problem is that your latex code will be deleted so i would recommend to put all formulas into one text document so you can have acces in case the tool fails (which never has happened since i started using it :P)
