The utilization of SVG techniques is hot among designers these days. SVG or scalable vector graphics helps designers to edit graphics which enhance the look or functionality of a website. Here is a list of SVG tools that can get the job done.
Interactive SVG Coordinate System is one of the simplest SVG tools to use. It has color coordinated scales helping users to understand the various scales and when a user changes the min-x and min-y values, it will automatically change the mid and max x as well as mid y and max y values.
When a designer imports an SVG file it can consist of various unnecessary elements which need to be edited. The metadata, comments, hidden elements, default or non-optimal values can be removed easily and safely with the help of SVGO before a designer applies them on a website in order to enhance the design or functional features.
