Learn to use SVG graphics in your Sitefinity website.

This brief video shows how easy it is to work with SVGs in Sitefinity.

What are SVGs?

SVGs are vector-based graphics for the web. Unlike JPEGS, GIFs, etc, they are defined mathematically, versus by pixels.

There are several benefits of SVGS, including:

  • SVGs are responsive and can scale to whatever size is required.
  • They can be styled with CSS, so one image can be used for multiple purposes.

CSS Examples for SVGs:

  • Define the color of an SVG:
    • fill: #2874AF;
  • Add a drop shadow:
    • filter: drop-shadow(3px 3px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, .7));
