Scale across mobile to cinema screens with SVG
80% of the presentations shared with customers are viewed on mobile devices. On the other hand, live presentations (either online or in-person) involves use of a larger, higher resolution screen. Raster graphics images in JPG, GIF and PNG format have a limited number of pixels do not scale very well across a wide range of display resolution. SVG – Scalable Vector Graphics content is represented as mathematical formulas to describe shapes, text and images. This makes SVG resolution independent.
SVGs are ideal for logos, icons, illustrations, and infographics. SVGs are underutilized in most presentations even though they have been around for a long time.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider using SVG content in your presentations:
- SVG content can scale infinitely in size without loss of quality
- Icons and illustrations designed in SVG format can be easily animated
- Compared to raster image files, SVG files are significantly smaller
- They are easy to edit using simple text editor
We surveyed lots of websites that offer free SVG and were pleasantly surprised by the quantity and quality of the content available.
The sites are ranked by the criteria described below but do try them all out. You never know which one works best for you.
SVG Ranking Criteria
- How many files are available on the website?
- Is the content on the site free to download? Do they require licensing or royalty payments for sharing or publishing the content?
