Does this sound possible?

lets say i have a solitaire game on my computer. and when i open up the file location, i can view the card files. they are split up into the back of the cards and the front of the cards. the file extension of the cards are .svg

my question is, could i open the files in a program like adobe illustrator or adobe Photoshop, and then set the value of the backs of the cards equal to the corresponding front of the card so i can see what the card is?
(I know, why solitaire)

Potentially.

SVG is a standard image format that stands for Scaled Vector Image. The fronts of the cards are all different, but the backs are all the same. I don't know why they would use 52 of the same image instead of just the one image. Try it out, see if it works.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

There is almost certainly only one file for the backs of the cards. Failing that, each image has both the front and back stored on it. If that's the case, you could do this fairly easily, but if there's only one file, this method wouldn't work.
