Convert your GIF file to SVG

Create vector 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.

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.

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.
