Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) 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 SVG to GIF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your SVG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the SVG to GIF conversion has completed, you can download your GIF file straight away.
We aim to process all SVG 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 being added every week.

Full Name: Scalable Vector Graphics
Mime Type: image/svg+xml
Introduced by the W3C organisation 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 whilst primarily a vector format can include raster images as well as text. Due to its 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.

Mime Type: image/gif
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.
