- Making SVG that we can use on our websites…is actually pretty easy…because we can use some of the same tools…we've used over the years,…like Illustrator and Photoshop,…and there's others out there,…like InkScape and different ones.…Of course, since it's XML, that's what it's based on,…you can also code it by hand…by using your favorite code editor.…But whether you use a program like Illustrator…or you hand-code it, there are a few caveats…to creating SVG that we will talk about,…and basically things to look out for.…Also we need to talk about how to further optimize,…and we'll do that next.…
