Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a CDT (Corel Draw) file and from this, create a new image saved in the GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple CDT image files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.
Along with converting CDT image files to GIF, our tool allows you to also adjust the image with some simple effects such as applying a greyscale filter to the image. These additional options are available within the Options tab. Along with Greyscale, you can also mirror/flip the image if needed. For single CDT file uploads you will also see options to resize and rotate your image.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your CDT to GIF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your CDT file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the CDT to GIF conversion has completed, you can download your GIF file straight away.

CDT is a native file format used by CorelDRAW created in 1989. It is a vector graphics format that started life on Windows 2 and has evolved over the years to support newer features and is still as popular as ever.
These files are binary in format and usually represent a group of assets in a zip format (whilst retaining the CDT file extension). CorelDRAW is still being developed today and is the primary program for working with CDT files.
GIF files have been around since the mid-to-late 1980's and were introduced by CompuServe as a way to compress color images into small file sizes suitable for downloading which at the time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying size color palettes up to 256-colors in total to be defined from a palette of 16 million colors.
Later on the ability to add animations to the GIF file format was added. GIF files became a popular image file format for the early internet due to the small size, large color palette and animation capabilities and is still popular today.
