File format information for ICO to SVG

Extension: ICO

Full Name: Icon

Type: Image

Mime Type: image/x-icon

Format: Binary

Description

The ICO file is an image format which started life on Microsoft Windows 1.0 and was used exclusively for storing image icons used by the operating system. Back then ICO files were limited in size to 32x32 pixels with only 2 colors. With subsequent versions of Windows the format has been amended and upgraded to support larger images with more colors.

Although the initial ICO format was not compressed due to their already small sizes (and limited computing power to decompress them in real-time), as the size of image icons has increased over the years Microsoft recommends that for larger icon files PNG compression be used for storing the raster data.

Extension: SVG

Full Name: Scalable Vector Graphics

Type: Image

Mime Type: image/svg+xml

Format: Text

Description

Introduced by the W3C organisation in 2001 the SVG file format grew to become the standard web file format for vector based 2D images and is supported by the majority of modern web browsers. SVG files are Xml based text files containing 2D vector elements such as paths, simple shapes, colors and more.

The SVG format itself whilst primarily a vector format can include raster images as well as text. Due to its vector based format SVG files lend themselves very well to website company logos and icons. A compressed format of SVG also exists which uses the extension SVGZ and employs the GZIP compression algorithm.
