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/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your HEIF to GIF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your HEIF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the HEIF to GIF conversion has completed, you can download your GIF file straight away.
We aim to process all HEIF to GIF 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.

The HEIF is a modern image format with the final specification completed in 2015. The format is a container format which whilst mostly used for storing image data the format can actually support video, audio and text data streams.
HEIF files are binary in nature and offer an alternative to existing digital photo formats such as JPEG featuring better compression whilst retaining comparable image quality. In some cases the file size can be 50% that of the equivalent JPG file.

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.
