Dear All,

Here is a MWE :

tiger <- image_read_svg('http://jeroen.github.io/images/tiger.svg', width = 400)

##   format width height colorspace matte filesize density
## 1    PNG   400    400       sRGB  TRUE        0   72x72

Why does the format say PNG ? Should it not say SVG? We just read an SVG file.

Can someone please explain?

Best Regards,
