What's the advantage of using SVG method instead of simply using images?

There are several advantages. Two I can think of right now are: 1. Since svg is like a text and not a image, using svg instead of image in your Web page makes it load faster when it is accessed by another computer than the host as svg file is downloaded as a text which is much lesser in size than typical image. 2. To increase the quality of the image you might want to increase the number of pixels in the image hence increasing the size of the image in terms of bytes. But with svg you can zoom in or out to any extent as svg is not pixel based hence increasing the speed of your Web page at the same time giving you higher degree of flexibility.

another advantage is that you can modify svg elements with javascript so you can get interactive or animated "images".. although for heavy animation you shoul consider using canvas

I think the advantage might be the independence on pixel.

it's an advantage because you can alter the shape anyway you want and it will still hold its legibility regardless of mobile, desktop, or any digital device

I think it gives more control to us as we can change the size, shape etc

simple... just Google the difference between VECTOR GRAPHIC and BITMAP. Svg is vector graphic

svg stands for scalable vector graphics. Vectors use calculations to draw the image to the screen. Other formats like .jpeg and .png are raster-based images, meaning they use pixels. If you try to scale these larger than the original dimensions they will become pixelated...resulting in poor quality
