Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a AVIF (AV1 Image File Format) file and from this, create a new image saved in the DDS (DirectDraw Surface) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your AVIF to DDS.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your AVIF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the AVIF to DDS conversion has completed, you can download your DDS file straight away.
We aim to process all AVIF to DDS conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the AVIF file you submit to us. The resulting DDS file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our AVIF to DDS tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our AVIF conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
|Full Name||AV1 Image File Format|
The AVIF format is an image based container format designed to store image or image sequences which are compressed with the AV1 compression algorithm. The format has been around since 2019 and is based on the HEIF container format and as such it competes with the HEIC image format.
During tests the format has shown to perform better than JPG files not just in the reduced file size but in overall image quality. Support for the format is growing and is already supported in the Chrome and Firefox web browsers. AVIF files can also be opened in many 2D image editing applications.
|Full Name||DirectDraw Surface|
The DDS file format was introduced my Microsoft in 1999 intended to be its standard image format for the DirectX 7 3D graphics Api. The format is used to store textures for use within 3D graphics and game environments and can be compressed or uncompressed.
The compression algorithm used by DDS was the previously proprietary S3 Texture Compression which could reduce the image file size down and was easy for the GPU to decompress in real-time. The format is still used and there are some 3rd party image editors that are compatible with the format.
