Overview

In the Admin section of the Andi® Skills Manager, you can upload an image for your organization by clicking on the 'Icon' tab. When uploading an image, the file format must be an SVG. This article will cover what an SVG file is, as well as provide additional resources that will help you create and format SVG files.

What is an SVG File?

An SVG file is an XML-based file format that describes 2D images. It is short for "Scalable Vector Graphics" and is used to share graphics on the internet. Because SVG's are XML-based, they can be searched, indexed, compressed and scripted.They can also be created and edited using a text editor, such as Notepad. The flexibility of SVG files make them beneficial to use: they are highly web-responsive, visually appealing, and they allow images to be scalable without losing its original quality.

Note: SVG files should be scaled with viewBox instead of height and width to display properly in Internet Explorer 11.
