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

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