5 Nice Free Online Image Conversion Tools
You don't need complicated or expensive image editing software to convert your images from one format to another. There are many free online tools that you can freely use for image conversion and in this post I will talk about 5 of them.
Whether you are building a new website, designing a new graphic material or preparing an visual presentation for your next meeting, working with images is often times a big part of what you are doing. One of the important aspects of working with image files is to convert them from one type to another in order to prepare them in the appropriate format to use in your medium.
In another post, I briefly talked about how to convert image file types which you may find useful for having a better understanding of how image conversion works and what your options are to do it. As also mentioned in that post, one of your options for converting image files is to use free online image conversion tools.
One of the main advantages of using an online tool for your image conversion tasks is that it will be available from anywhere and any device, as long as you have an Internet connection. Furthermore, with some tools, you can use images from your online file storage accounts (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) easily. Also, some of the online image converters are as much or even more capable than the desktop tools. Combined with the online image editing tools, online image conversion tools will be a nice addition to your tool arsenal. You just need to make sure while doing your image conversions that the tool you are using actually does convert and not only rename the image file, which is not a real conversion.
Now, let's start with our list of free image converters you can use online.
