Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file and from this, create a new image saved in the AVIF (AV1 Image File 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 PNG to AVIF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your PNG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the PNG to AVIF conversion has completed, you can download your AVIF file straight away.
We aim to process all PNG to AVIF 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 being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the PNG file you submit to us. The resulting AVIF file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our PNG to AVIF tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.
PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.
The AVIF format is an image based container format designed to store image or image sequences which are compressed with the AV1 compression algorithm. The format has been around since 2019 and is based on the HEIF container format and as such it competes with the HEIC image format.
During tests the format has shown to perform better than JPG files not just in the reduced file size but in overall image quality. Support for the format is growing and is already supported in the Chrome and Firefox web browsers. AVIF files can also be opened in many 2D image editing applications.
