Convert your HEIF file to SVG

Create vector 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 vector-based SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file that you can then download and edit within vector file editors or use for high-definition printing applications. If you have multiple HEIF files to convert, then our tool can also batch convert HEIF files too. Currently, our tool supports up to 25 conversions at a time.

Options are available to specify or remove a background color if the source HEIF 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.

HEIF to SVG Conversion Options

Mode

The Mode setting is used by the tool to inform it of the best way to vectorize the image by providing it with clues as to the type of image being submitted. The Auto mode attempts to find the most suitable settings for the image uploaded. There are, however, other options to help fine-tune this process, which we explain in more detail in the Tool Options section below.

Hole Reduction

With this setting, it is possible to reduce the inclusion of small holes within the final vector file caused by small, contrasting areas of the source HEIF file, which can be useful in situations where the source image has not been optimized for use with the tool.

Merge Similar Colors

Use this value to merge similar colors; this is useful if the image is of low quality. A higher number can help reduce the effects of anti-aliasing in the HEIF image.

Remove Background

When this option is enabled, the tool will automatically attempt to make the background of your image transparent.

Specify Color

Manually specify your image background color rather than our tool trying to automatically work it out.

Color

If the tool is unable to identify the background and you know the background color, you can specify it here.

Tolerance

This value can be adjusted to control the background removal tolerance. The higher the value, the more background is removed.

A higher value is useful for creating smoother results if your image is anti-aliased.

Description

The HEIF is a modern image format, with the final specification completed in 2015. The format is a container format, which, while mostly used for storing image data, 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 features better compression while retaining comparable image quality. In some cases, the file size can be 50% that of the equivalent JPG file.

Description

Introduced by the W3C organization 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, while primarily a vector format, can include raster images as well as text. Due to their 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.
