EasyReader SVG Image support

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images are images in XML format that can be scaled down while maintaining a high resolution.

SVG images are composed of a fixed set of shapes, opposed to bitmap images which are composed of a fixed set of dots. The advantages of using SVG images are that when scaled down, bitmap images reveal the individual dots that construct the image, whereas SVG images preserve the shapes.

Because SVG images are based on the XML specification, it is also really easy for content providers to add text, and even hyperlinks to the images.

In EasyReader, readers can simply select the image to access the SVG’s text description or follow through to any hyperlinks in the image.
