What is SVG

The size of SVG files (image weight), unlike bitmaps, does not depend on the size in pixels, but depends on the amount of code. For large images, the benefits of the SVG format are clear. It can be assumed that SVG always outperforms bitmaps in terms of file size, but this is not always the case. If you are building websites, you may be familiar with SVG files. It is not a very common image format, but is supported by most modern web browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox. SVG, which stands for Scalable Vector Graphics, is an XML-based vector graphics format. SVG files can be optimized for three things: file size, rendering speed, and editing. In most cases, optimization for editing is necessary - especially for complex drawings.

How SVG compression works

The amount of SVG code can be reduced through optimization. Removing metadata. After saving in graphic editors (for example, Adobe Illustrator), the SVG code contains a lot of unnecessary information, the removal of which will reduce the file size and in no way affect the image. Removing unnecessary objects. The image can contain unnecessary or hidden objects, as well as tags that group objects, the removal of which does not affect the image. Removing unused classes and identifiers. When editing vector images, graphic editors can add classes and identifiers to the tags, which the final version of the image does not need. Optimization of tag attributes. Frequent use of attributes can be replaced with CSS properties: with a large number of elements, this can significantly reduce the weight of the SVG. Removing unnecessary nodes. Each point in a vector image is reflected in the volume of the code: removing unnecessary nodes will help reduce its volume.
