Saving a Logo as an SVG File

Hey y'all, I'm pretty new to the process of making logos with illustrator, and I'm having some trouble saving it. I got a layout that I'm happy with, but when I export it as an svg and then open it in Photoshop it doesn't look the same as it did when it was in illustrator.

 

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

Will,

 

I believe screenshots showing the original artwork and the SVG placed in AI and in PS will help helpers help, please use the Insert Photos button (moon over mountains at the top of the Reply box) to make them immediately visible.

You are saving as an SVG file for the sake of opening in Photoshop?

You can open the AI file directly if you save it "PDF compatible"

 

When saving SVGs, make sure to enter a higher number of decimals. The default is 2, which is often not enough.

I'm not saving it as an SVG for the sake of opening it in photoshop, I have to send the logo off to someone and wanted to make sure it saved correctly since this is my first time usuing illustrator like this, so when I opened the saved SVG file in PS it didn't look the same as it did in illustrator. this is where my concern/confusion is coming from.

To check an SVG I would open it in a browser (Chrome supports SVG well) or in Inkscape (SVG is its native file format). Or open it in the environment that your client is using.

Is there a way I can see how it's going to save in illustrator before I actually save it? Because after I save it, weird lines start jutting out all over the place that weren't there before.

No, there is not.

 

That's just another reason why SVG should never be your workfile.
