Png Vs Svg Performance. The file itself is flat. Scalable Vector Graphics SVG is the description of an image as an application of the Extensible Markup Language XML.
Unlike an SVG file a PNG file DOES NOT have cut lines inside the file. There is nothing better or worse between jpg png gif or svg. Good for images with text in them.
Im wondering why so few modern web sites still use only PNGs for icons but this assumption is just based my observation.
The second image above is the SVG saved in the SVG 11 Tiny format. SVG images are typically much smaller file sizes than a PNG but only when they are simpler images with only a few colors. You can not ungroup or move layers around remember it doesnt have any to cut in different colors. When you send it to cut you will only see an outline of the entire image not the individual layers.
