The website also offers a basic image editor for free. Click Image Editor on the banner at the top to access the application. This tool can convert SVG images into PNG format, rotate parts of an image, adjust color and delete individual paths.
With over 80,000 SVG images from which to choose, FreePik offers SVG images for personal or commercial projects. The website categorizes these images and offers a useful sorting tool.

Whereas raster image formats, such as PNG and JPG, store image information in pixels, SVG files store image data as lines and curves. As such, SVG images retain a smooth look no matter how much the user scales them. SVG images also take up very little space on the hard drive.
