SVG, or Scalable Vector Graphics, is among the most interesting, and potentially useful image formats today. Unlike the other formats here, SVG is really a XML mark-up language for vector graphics. Vector graphics, based on Wikipedia, is the usage of geometrical primitives for example points, lines, curves, and polygons to represent images in computer graphics. As opposed to having all the information for each pixel in an image, as all the prior image formats do, SVG defines things during these geometrical primitives. What this means is, when you expand an SVG image, it always stays sharp, rather than becomes pixilated. This can be quite ideal for logos and other simple graphics, permitting many different sizes of the same image to use with no reduction in quality. Also, SVG images normally have very small file sizes. As noticed in the picture, SVG graphics usually are not photo-realistic. They also require different skills and, generally, different programs to make them.

As for web design, cut files are the dream for quality of images; unfortunately, Ie 6 and Safari both require plug-ins to see SVG files. Still, SVG images can be used as a lossless image utilized as the archive version, then changed into JPEG or PNG files to use on the web.
