Abstract: Today image steganography plays a key role for exchanging a secret data through the internet. However, the optimal choice of images formats for processing steganography is still an open issue; therefore, this research comes into a table. This research conducts a comparative study between Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) image format and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) image format. As results show, SVG image format is more efficient than PNG image format in terms of capacity and scalability before and after processing steganography. As well, SVG image format helps to increase simplicity and performance for processing steganography, since it is an XML text file. Our comparative study provides significant results between SVG and PNG images, which have not been seen in the previous related studies.
