SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. You can save your designs created in Adobe Illustrator in this format and place them on your website designed with Adobe Muse.
Now you should be thinking… Why should I save my logos or icons in SVG instead of PNG or JPG? The main reason is that SVG format is light and resolution independent. This means that the graphics can be scaled to any dimension without affecting the page-load time or the resolution of the element in your site.
In this tutorial you are going to learn how to save graphics in SVG format using Adobe Illustrator and how to use SVG in Adobe Muse.
We are going to use these Round Flat Icons package from Freepik.com for this tutorial. You can use these icons or design your own.
