Color gradients can be linear or radial (circular), and can involve any number of colors as well as repeats. Patterns are based on predefined raster or vector graphic objects, which can be repeated in among professional users of SVG that either gradient meshes or preferably diffusion curves could usefully be added to the SVG specification.It is said that a "simple representation [using diffusion curves] is capable of representing even very subtle shading effects" and that "Diffusion curve images are comparable both in quality and coding efficiency with gradient meshes, but are simpler to create (according to several artists who have used both tools), and can be captured from bitmaps fully automatically."Graphic elements, including text, paths, basic shapes and combinations of these, can be used as outlines to define both inside and outside regions that can be painted (with colors, gradients and patterns) independently.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation.

The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999.

In the picture, scaling the bitmap reveals the pixels while scaling the vector image preserves the shapes.

SVG has been in development within the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999, after six competing proposals for vector graphics languages had been submitted to the consortium during 1998.

Graphical objects can be grouped, styled, transformed and composited into previously rendered objects.

The feature set includes nested transformations, clipping paths, alpha masks, filter effects and template objects.

This image illustrates the difference between bitmap and vector images.

The bitmap image is composed of a fixed set of pixels, while the vector image is composed of a fixed set of shapes.

SVG images and their behaviors are defined in XML text files.
