What is an SVG file?
An SVG file is a graphics file that uses a two-dimensional vector graphic format created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It describes images using a text format that is based on XML. SVG files are developed as a standard format for displaying vector graphics on the web.
The SVG format is an open standard developed under the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), with Adobe playing a major role. SVG images can be created and exported from Adobe Creative Suite programs, such as Illustrator and GoLive.
The SVG format is not natively supported by Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and InDesign. However, you can open SVG files in these programs using the SVG Kit for Adobe CS plug-in, which is developed by Scand.
NOTE: More information about the SVG format can be found online at Adobe's Scalable Vector Graphics information page.
Programs that open SVG files
File Type 2Saved Game File
.SVG File Association 2
Saved game file created by various games, including Quake III: Team Arena, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Grand Theft Auto 2 (GTA2); saves player progress in a game and allows progress to be resumed; typically saved by the game without the user having to manually access the actual file itself.
Because different games use different formats for SVG files, you may have to try multiple programs before being able to open them. For example, GTA2 Saved Game Editor can edit SVG files created by GTA2 but not SVG files created by Quake III: Team Arena.
NOTE: If you don't have a program that opens or edits SVG files, try opening your SVG file in a text editor such as Notepad.
