Convert your HEIF file to GIF

Convert image files with our easy-to-use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) file and, from this, create a new image saved in the GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) format that you can then download and edit within image file editors or use for high-definition printing applications. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple HEIF image files; up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

Along with converting HEIF image files to GIF, our tool allows you to also adjust the image with some simple effects, such as applying a grayscale filter to the image. These additional options are available within the Options tab. Along with grayscale, you can also mirror or flip the image if needed. For single HEIF file uploads, you will also see options to resize and rotate your image.

Description

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, at which time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying-size color palettes of 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 their small size, large color palette, and animation capabilities, and they are still popular today.
