Graphics Importing & Exporting
Mathematica can immediately export graphics and animations to online, print, and web formats, preserving dynamic annotation when possible. Mathematica also has powerful capabilities for importing graphics, geometry, and other formats—immediately translating to a variety of fully integrated symbolic forms.
Export export static or animated graphics, or geometry data
Import import from files and URLs as images, animations, graphics primitives, etc.
