I need to save out some images for a website project at work. These images will span the full background of the site using background-cover. I first thought that svg would be the correct choice but I couldn't get the file size to anything acceptable. It turned out that jpg or png seemed like it was a better bet now because I could compress it down much smaller.
At work I am being told that I should be using svg for this project but from the research I have done I don't see a way to compress down to a reasonable size. Am I missing some technique to get svg to scale much smaller?
