How to convert SVG to PDF on a Mac

The fastest way I’ve found to convert an SVG image to PDF so that I can use it in LaTeX on my Mac is the following:

  1. Use this online conversion tool to convert the SVG to an A4-size PDF: http://www.fileformat.info/convert/image/svg2pdf.htm
  2. Download the produced PDF and crop it using Preview

Supposedly, Incscape can do the conversion in one step but it takes about 3 centuries to start on my Mac and it didn’t render a couple of SVGs I tried it with correctly.
