Last week a reader reached out to me for advice about how to design slides and PDFs so that the images in them didn’t get grainy-looking when they were enlarged. The solution that immediately came to my mind was to use SVG files whenever possible instead of JPG or PNG files. SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic.
An SVG won’t get grainy when it is enlarged for use on a slide or PDF. In the video that is embedded below I demonstrate how to use SVG files in PowerPoint and Canva. In the video I also show a couple of places to find SVG files.
