I'm fairly new to code, been learning for less than a year, so sorry if this is a dumb question.
Why do developers/designers still use png instead of svg?
With svg being infinitely scalable and with retina screens, why do designers still spend time creating twice as many png icons, etc?
Far as I can tell, you can create svg sprites and use them in the same way as a png sprite, so you would only need to create one, instead of having to create 2 (one for retina and 1 for non-retina)
Is there a reason that png is still widely used today?
Anyone here use svg over png? Have you run into any problems?
I know inline svg isn't something that is greatly supported and from what I've read, there are issues doing it that way. Personally, I am more concerned about using svg sprites in the same way as you would use a png sprite, as this is what I am doing on my site and I haven't had any issues yet and hence why I am asking this question.
If you're doing something that seems flawless, but no one else is really doing it, then you start to wonder why lol
