Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) file and from this, create a new image saved in the AVIF (AV1 Image File Format) 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 GIF to AVIF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your GIF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the GIF to AVIF conversion has completed, you can download your AVIF file straight away.
We aim to process all GIF to AVIF 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.

|Full Name||Graphics Interchange Format|
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.
|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.
