SVG, or Scalable Vector Graphic, is a vector graphic, as the name implies. Raster graphic formats include PNG, GIF, JPG, and BMP. The main difference between these two is that vectors are made up of paths, making them scalable, whereas rasters are made up of hard pixel data, making them unscalable. (We simply extrapolate the current pixel data when resizing the raster image.) Vector, on the other hand, recalculates the path to fit the desired size.)

Isn’t this article supposed to be about making SVG from PNG? It depends on the image, to be sure. We can’t make an SVG from a photograph or a detailed image, of course. However, simple images with limited color and shape complexity, such as cartoons, icons, or flat designs, such as the smiley image below, are possible.

Export pictures from Photoshop and save individual PSD vector layers as SVG images.

Export to SVG from Photoshop

1. Make sure the shape layer you’re exporting as SVG has been created in Photoshop.

If the vector shape is inserted in a Smart Object, it cannot be exported as an SVG. In order to export it, open the original vector file in Adobe Illustrator and export it as SVG there.

2. Select the shape layer in the Layer panel.

3. Go to File > Export > Export As.)

Right-click on the selection and select Export as

4. Choose SVG format.

Capture SVG

5. Click Export.

NOTE: If you want to export a text layer as SVG, first convert it to a shape. If you need to export a shape with a background (i.e. not transparent), duplicate the background layer in the Layers panel before exporting.
