SVG to Design Spac
SVG or Scalable Vector Graphic is a quirky type of image format. They use ‘vector’ data rather than depending on unique pixels to make up the images we see. A vector is an element that has both magnitude and direction. The collection of vectors helps us to draw any type of graphics using it as the printing of a signboard, T-shirt, or a sandwich board. SVG graphic format is based on extensible Markup Language (XML) which uses tags like HTML. This means all the information regarding the image's lines, shape, color, and text is saved in the readable text files which makes the file format easily personalized.

Without losing the image's initial quality one can easily modify the image in any manner. SVG can operate easily with languages like DOM, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS hence, also known as W3C standard making it suitable for the global industry.

Reasons for Using SVG:
  • It is animatedly
  • They are small file sizes
  • Quite interactive
  • It is style-able
  • It is responsible as well as resolution-independent
