Feedback, please: SVG in Photoshop

Adobe has supported the Scalable Vector Graphics standard since its inception. (I joined Adobe in 2000 specifically to work on an SVG animation tool, LiveMotion.) The company keeps pressing forward with improvements, as detailed in this post from the Web platform team.

You can already use some of these tweaks in the latest update to Illustrator CC, which now lets you export scalable, responsive SVG files that can adapt to different screen sizes and resolutions. Check out a very quick demo:

So, what does all of this have to do with Photoshop? The team is working to enable better & better conversion of Photoshop artwork into Web-native content, including CSS & SVG. You can turn on SVG export via these steps in the latest PS CC (version 14.2).

If you turn on SVG export, the team would love to hear your feedback. In particular, designer Tim Riot is standing by on Twitter. TIA.

    i love svg support i had this radical notion of making a site with all svg graphics. Kind like with my idea of making an entirely rotoscoped feature length movie I’m not sure if i will ever get around to actually doing it though.
