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 PNG (Portable Network Graphics) 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 GIF image files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.
Along with converting GIF image files to PNG, 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 GIF file uploads you will also see options to resize and rotate your image.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your GIF to PNG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your GIF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the GIF to PNG conversion has completed, you can download your PNG file straight away.

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.
The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use of a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.
PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.
