Export as SVG in Photoshop?


I have opened a PNG image in Photoshop. I want to export as SVG and make the image pixelated. How do I do this?

When I zoom in the image in Photoshop, the image is pixelated. I want to have the exact same effect but in an SVG export.

You cannot export SVG with Adobe Photoshop. The only way to achieve what you want is to copy the image to Adobe Illustrator and save it as an SVG file.

I'm not sure why you would do that, though, since the point of SVG is to make Scalable Vector Graphics so you can resize the image without it getting pixelated. By exporting it as SVG you basically wrap the PNG code you already have in XML - you might just as easily use a PNG file instead.
