First time trying to use illustrator as needed to convert some illustrations into vectors.

I have opened up my first file and seemingly on the Ai interface successfully converted to a vector and made my bckground transparrent, but when I then save as an SVG and open, several of the edges between colours have a transparent gap that isn't visible in Ai so I'm not sure how I can get rid of them!? If anyone is able to help (using as simple language as possible for a newbie!) I'd be eternally grateful!

 

Pics attached are zoomed in - the dodgy one has been placed on a white background, its still transparent.Screenshot 2022-08-03 at 09.59.50.pngScreenshot 2022-08-03 at 09.59.37.png

When saving set a higher "Decimals" value in the options.

This will not magically correct an already saved SVG

Better not use "Save as" for SVG. It creates outdated code.

Better to use Export for Screens.

The options can be accessed by clicking on the cogwheel
