I have a layer which consists of point data. I have switched the symbology of the layer to a svg image that I loaded in. To maintain the symbology I went to LayerProperties>style and then i saved the style. However, when I open the layer on a different computer (one with out the svg saved in) and apply the layer style nothing come up. How can I save a picture marker to a layer file and still be able to send it via email etc. and have it show up on another computer.


There is no good solution for sharing symbols with SVGs yet. Here's a recent discussion on the mailing list and the resulting feature request.

For now, you have to manually make sure to copy the SVG and configure QGIS to find it on the other PC.
