SVG, or Scalable Vector Graphics, is probably the most interesting, and potentially useful image formats today. Unlike the other formats here, SVG can be a XML mark-up language for vector graphics. Vector graphics, according to Wikipedia, is the usage of geometrical primitives including points, lines, curves, and polygons to represent images in computer graphics. Instead of having every one of the information for each and every pixel in an image, as every one of the prior image formats do, SVG defines things over these geometrical primitives. This implies, when you expand an SVG image, it always stays sharp, and not becomes pixilated. This could be quite useful for logos as well as other simple graphics, allowing for many different sizes of the same image for use with no loss in quality. Also, SVG images normally have very small file sizes. As observed in the picture, SVG graphics aren't photo-realistic. They also require different skills and, generally, different programs to create them.


In terms of web design, cricut files would be the dream for quality of images; unfortunately, Internet Explorer 6 and Safari both require plug-ins to look at SVG files. Still, SVG images can be used as a lossless image used as the archive version, then converted into JPEG or PNG files for use on the web.
