What is an SVG?
An SVG file, or Scalable Vector Graphic file, is a file format that renders two-dimensional images. It describes how the image should appear using an XML text format.
More About SVGs
SVG files rely on vector data instead of rasterization to serve images. An SVG file format is resolution-independent, meaning that the image size can be changed without losing any quality. Websites often use SVG files for this advantage, resizing images for a wide range of projects.
SVGs are beneficial for creating logos, animated elements, charts, graphs, and diagrams. However, they aren’t as versatile as PNG and JPG file formats. When used with accessibility tags, SVGs can also be read by screen readers, making a website more inclusive. Additionally, SVG files are usually smaller, which can reduce a page’s loading time.
