Windows Metafile Format (WMF) is a Microsoft Windows (Windows) file type that can store vector and bitmap images. Microsoft designed WMF to share graphics data between Microsoft applications. WMF is the 16-bit precursor to the 32-bit Enhanced Windows Metafile (EMF).
An alternative viewer to try is XnView MP, which is cross-platform and free. Programs that can open WMF on Windows include PhotoFiltre Studio, Ability Photopaint, and Ultimate Paint. On macOS, a good alternative is WMF Converter Pro.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a resolution-independent, open-standard file format. It is based on Extensible Markup Language (XML), uses vector graphics, and supports limited animation. The main benefit of using an SVG file is, as the name implies, its scalability. This file type can be resized without a loss in image quality. In addition, SVG is unique in that it is not an image format. Instead, it is an XML-based standard that provides information for creating two-dimensional vector images.
SVG files open readily in most web browsers, such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge. In addition, since SVG is an XML file, you can view the XML-associated text in any common text editor, such as Windows Notepad or Brackets for macOS.
It is possible to use Adobe programs for opening and editing SVG files. Just be sure to install the SVG Kit for Adobe Creative Suite plug-in first. Converting SVG files is possible with the aid of a few online tools. For conversion to non-vector file types, try our SVG to GIF or SVG to PDF tools. To convert to vector files like SVG into JPG, try our SVG to JPG or SVG to PNG tools.
