You might have noticed vector icons showing up on Iconfinder. Some days ago we released an update with the support for vector icons and have started adding new icons in SVG format.
Even though icons are uploaded in SVG format, you will still be able to download them in PNG directly from the site. When icons are uploaded in SVG files, we’ll do conversion to PNG, ICNS and ICO automatically and all you have to do is click the link of the format you need.
What format do you prefer for vector icons? SVG, AI, EPS or PSD?
How to download icons in SVG format
The icons can easily be downloaded in SVG format. Just click the SVG link above the icons:
How to open icons in Illustrator

File > Open and select the SVG file you have downloaded.
How to open icons in Photoshop
Photoshop does not allow you to open SVG files. You have to have a program such as Illustrator to open the file. Select the vector icons and copy it to your clip-board. Go to Photoshop and paste it into an open document. Now select
Shape layer. The icon is now available in your Photoshop document in a nice scalable vector format.
