What are SVG files?
SVG stands for scalable vector graphics. It’s a scalable, open format file that defines graphics in Extensible Markup Language, or XML. Scalable here means SVG graphics are typically used to share images on the web because they retain their quality when very large or very small.
Because SVG is a vector graphic format, Photoshop will automatically convert the file to a raster image when it’s imported. If you’re using Adobe Illustrator, you can still work with it in a vector image format.
