Why when I import SVG, it turns into an image not a vector?

When I import an SVG from Photoshop into Figma (either by dragging it into Figma or “place image”), it doesn’t import as a vector it becomes an image. I want the SVG to be a vector. Is this happening because I’m saving it incorrectly in Photoshop or because I am importing it incorrectly?

You are probably saving a raster image embedded into the SVG format.

okay, thank you!
