SVG File: What is a .SVG file, and how do I open it?

SVG is the acronym for “Scalable Vector Graphics”, and is a two-dimensional vector graphics file format based on the XML markup language. It’s an open standard format that was developed by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in 1999.

Because of the XML base, these files can be searched, indexed, scripted, and compressed. The files are accessible with text editors and vector graphics software. The image format is great for sharing graphics content over the Internet. Every major web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari, have the rendering properties for these vector graphics files. 

Unlike EMF and WMF the SVG format does not support raster bitmaps.

The SVG format is currently not supported by ImagePrint, but we plan to include this format in future releases.
