Create vector 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 vector-based SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file that you can then download and edit/use within vector file editors or use for high definition printing applications. If you have multiple GIF files to convert then our tool can also batch convert GIF files too. Currently our tool supports up to 25 conversions at a time.
Options are available to specify/remove a background color if the source GIF image does not contain a transparent background. Our tool can attempt to determine the background color automatically or you can manually specify the background color to remove.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an SVG file from a GIF file.
Click the "Upload a File" button and select a GIF to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.
Set the dimensions and other options and click the "Convert to SVG" button to convert your GIF to SVG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your GIF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the GIF to SVG conversion has completed, you can download your SVG file straight away.
We aim to process all GIF to SVG 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 GIF file you submit to us. The resulting SVG file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our GIF to SVG 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 GIF 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.
Yes! Our GIF tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 GIF files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the SVG files individually or download them all in a single Zip file.
|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||Scalable Vector Graphics|
Introduced by the W3C organisation in 2001 the SVG file format grew to become the standard web file format for vector based 2D images and is supported by the majority of modern web browsers. SVG files are XML based text files containing 2D vector elements such as paths, simple shapes, colors and more.
The SVG format itself whilst primarily a vector format can include raster images as well as text. Due to its vector based format SVG files lend themselves very well to website company logos and icons. A compressed format of SVG also exists which uses the extension SVGZ and employs the GZIP compression algorithm.
