Draw API, save drawings

Well, so far I have created a drawing pad similar to to http://www.youdraw.com, now comes the hard part, saving the drawing.

So far i’ve seen that you can create a SVG file with the coordinates of the drawing, but that can take up a lot of space on the server if each svg is saved.

Is there a way for the svg to be converted into a gif? Or a way to take the coordinates and convert that into a gif?

Any ideas would be helpful, thanks :slight_smile:
