SVG vs. PNG

over 2 years ago from , UI/UX Designer

The front end development manager just unilaterally decided to forgo use of SVGs in favor of PNGs for all new designs unless there are specific use cases to utilize the SVG image type.

Before that we considered SVG our default type for any shapes, icons, vector logos, etc.

I'm not sure it was the correct decision, but I may be wrong. This change stemmed from us as a company experiencing issues with SVGS when implementing them into a CMS (as most corporate CMSs don't natively support them).

Can someone who works with them on the daily give me some clarity? The web seems divided overall regarding which is best.
