  <title>SVG to canvas to file</title>
    <p>This Pen intends to show a problem when writing an SVG to a canvas and then downloading that canvas to PNG when devicePixelRatio is something other than 1. On a MacBook Pro with retina display devicePixelRatio is 2. In order for the canvas not to be blurry it needs to be scaled up by a factor of 2. When drawn to the screen it can easily be scaled down again with CSS, creating a sharp image. However, downloading the canvas as a PNG will then result in an image twice the intended size.</p>
    <p><strong>My question: is there a way to generate an SVG to PNG that is both sharp and the same size as the SVG?</strong></p>
