To reproduce this error: ========================
Run SIP containing vector graphic files (svg, eps) through Archivematica, uploading DIP to ICA-AtoM

Resulting error: ================
All the uploaded images are indexed as Media type: Text by ICA-AtoM because they are PDFs

Expected result: ================
These should be indexed as images. Solution is to change the access format to jpg or another raster format if necessary.

Vector images don't convert that well to jpg, png etc. So the best solution would be to have svg be the access format. ICA-AtoM recognizes svg as image files.

Using SVG format for access copies doesn't work well because ICA-AtoM invokes ImageMagick to create jpg reference display copies anyway, with relatively poor results. Best to leave the access copies as pdfs.
