Image formats we support
Here you will find all image formats we support for conversions.
PNG is a lossless raster format that stands for Portable Network Graphics. can display higher color depths, which translates into millions of colors. PNGs are a web standard and are quickly becoming one of the most common image formats used online.
JPG is a lossy raster format that stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the technical team that developed it. This is one of the most widely used formats online, typically for photos, email graphics and large web images like banner ads.
JPEG is a lossy raster format that stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the technical team that developed it. This is one of the most widely used formats online, typically for photos, email graphics and large web images like banner ads.
Excellent choice for both images and animated images. WebP offers much better compression than PNG or JPEG with support for higher color depths, animated frames, transparency.
GIF is a lossless raster format that stands for Graphics Interchange Format. GIF is a widely used web image format, typically for animated graphics like banner ads, email images and social media memes.
TIFF is a lossless raster format that stands for Tagged Image File Format. Because of its extremely high quality, the format is primarily used in photography and desktop publishing. You’ll likely encounter TIFF files when you scan a document or take a photo with a professional digital camera.
24-bit compressed JPEG graphic format that is commonly used for Web graphics; best suited for photos or images that contain lots of colors; also used by most digital cameras for saving digital photos.
A JIF file is a raster graphic saved in the JPEG Interchange Format (JIF). It typically stores digital photos and web graphics, much like .JPG and .JPEG image files. JIF files are compressed using lossy Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) compression to reduce the size of the image.
A JFIF file is a bitmap graphic that uses JPEG compression. It is saved using a variation of the common .JPEG file format, designed to include a minimal amount of data and allow easy exchange across multiple platforms and applications.
Compressed bitmap image that uses JPEG compression; may include variations to the standard JPEG format as defined in the JFIF (JPEG File Interchange Format) specification; also seen with the .JFIF extension.
A BMP file is an uncompressed raster image comprised of a rectangular grid of pixels. It contains a file header (bitmap identifier, file size, width, height, color options, and bitmap data starting point) and bitmap pixels, each with a different color.
HEIF stands for High Efficiency Image Format. An HEIF file is an image saved in the High Efficiency Image Format (HEIF), a lossy compressed format. It may contain still images, image collections, image bursts, and image sequences. HEIF files also store metadata that describes each image.
An HEIC file contains one or more images saved in the High Efficiency Image Format (HEIF), a file format most commonly used to store photos on iOS devices. It contains an image or sequence of images likely created by an iPhone or iPad's Camera app, as well as metadata describing each image.
AVIF or AV Image Format is an open and royalty-free image format based on the AV1 codec, and similar to AV1 – AVIF provides a very high compression rate. it proves beneficial in both processing time and handling hardware issues. The only pitfall is that a few applications support it.
An XMB file is a game resource file used by Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It contains XML data that has been converted to binary.
Black and white bitmap image format used by mobile devices such as cell phones and PDAs; can be sent from one phone to another via the SMS messaging protocol; similar to a standard bitmap (.BMP) file, but only supports monochrome (1-bit) image data.
ICO file format refers to an image file format that contains small size computer icon images. Mostly used in Microsoft Windows ICO format is capable of containing one or multiple small images of multiples sizes and color depths. Multiple sizes of the ICO images allow icons to be scaled appropriately.
PPM is short for Portable Pixmap Format. Although these files are rare these days, you can spot one by looking out for the . PPM extension. The PPM format emerged in the late 1980s to make sharing images between different platforms easier.
AAI is a raster image file format associated with Dune HD media players. It is a simple uncompressed truecolor format, with support for alpha transparency.
ART is a proprietary image file format used mostly by the America Online (AOL) service and client software.
ARW is a raw image file format used by Sony Cameras. In this format, all the data captured by the Camera's CCD is preserved using TIFF specifications.
BPG (Better Portable Graphics) is a new image format. Its purpose is to replace the JPEG image format when quality or file size is an issue. Its main advantages are: High compression ratio. Files are much smaller than JPEG for similar quality.
The CALS Raster file format is a standard for the interchange of graphics data. It was developed by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) as part of the Continuous Acquisition and Life-cycle Support (CALS) initiative.
Image created by Kodak's Cineon film system; transfers film images to a digital format for electronic compositing, manipulation and enhancement; outputs back to film with no loss of image quality.
A .CIP file is a Cisco IP Phone Image bitmap file. We have not yet analyzed in detail what these files contain and what they are used for.
A CR2 file is a camera raw image created by various Canon digital cameras, such as the EOS 1D Mark IV and EOS 450D
Uncompressed and unprocessed Camera RAW image file from a Canon digital camera; based on the Camera Image File Format (CIFF), a standardized format developed for saving images.
A CUR file is a cursor image or animation used for the Windows mouse pointer. It may be an arrow (for general use), a spinning hourglass (for waiting periods), or an I-bar (for text editing).
Device-independent bitmap image file originally developed for Dr. Halo software but now supported by various other applications; supports 8 bits per pixel for a total of 256 colors; used for storing small bitmap images.
DCR is short for Digital Camera Raw, the raw image format created by Kodak. It is used in Kodak SLR cameras to store uncompressed and lossless version of the images taken. DCR image appears exactly like it's been captured without any kind of image adjustment.
Multi-page image file created by various image programs; contains a small header that identifies the DCX file followed by a sequence of . PCX files; commonly used to create digital fax files. The DCX file format was originally developed by Zsoft.
EPS is a vector file format often required for professional and high-quality image printing. PostScript printers and image setters typically use EPS to produce vast, detailed images — such as billboard advertising, large posters, and attention-grabbing marketing collateral.
An eps2 Level II Encapsulated PostScript file is a special file format by Adobe Systems Incorporated and should only be edited and saved with the appropriate software.
EPS3 files mostly belong to Level III Encapsulated PostScript by Adobe Systems Incorporated. Use our "Online EPS3 File Viewer" below to open and view your EPS3 file directly in your browser.
An ORF file is a RAW photo taken with an Olympus digital camera. It is saved in the Olympus RAW Format (ORF), which stores image data exactly as captured by the camera's sensor. ORF files also include color, saturation, contrast, and temperature data and metadata detailing the specifications of the camera that captured the ORF image.
An NEF file is a raw photo captured by a Nikon digital camera. It is saved in an uncompressed Nikon Electronic Format (NEF), which stores data exactly as it was captured by the CCD. NEF files also contain image metadata, which includes the camera ID and the lens that was used.
An HDR file is a raster image or digital photo saved in HDR soft's High Dynamic Range (HDR) image format. It is used for enhancing the color and brightness range of a digital image. HDR files can also be processed to fix dark shadows or washed-out areas of a picture.
