Transparent JPEG emulation via SVG

Project description

Wanna transparent JPEG? Unfortunately there is no such thing except mostly unsupported JPEG 2000. But you can convert your transparent image into SVG containing a color information as JPEG and an alpha channel as a greyscale mask. This simple tool does exactly this. The logo above is an example.
