The Free www.Online-Convert.com File Transformation Website

This article discusses the features of the www.Online-Convert.com for converting a variety of files to different formats.


I have discovered what I think is the best online utility for converting my Microsoft Word documents into JPG images. Actually, this is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what this very useful website can do. The JPG image conversion is only one of several target images that input files can be converted to under the “Image converter” category. In fact, there are several more categories that facilitate conversion of input files to many different types of file formats.

Here I want to present an overview of how the free https://www.online-convert.com/  is set up to handle many types of software conversion tasks. The main menu is set up like this:

Audio converter

Video converter

Image converter

Document converter

Ebook converter

Archive converter

Hash generator

Underneath each of these categories is a drop down list showing a selection of target formats. Since I have only used it to convert my input files to images, I will limit the following discussion to the “Image converter” category.

The target formats for converting input files to images are: BMP, EPS, GIF, HDR/EXR, ICO, JPG, PNG, SVG, TGA, TIFF, WBMP and WebP. These links are on the left side of the page just under the selected “Image converter” category.

As an example, let’s say we want to convert something to the JPG image format. In the middle of the screen you will see 2 options for inputting the file to be converted. There is a text box with a browse button for uploading your input file. Or you can specify a URL to convert in the box beneath the file upload box.

Below the two file input choices there is an area for “Optional settings”. Here you can change input parameters such as pixel height and width, color, enhancement and DPI (dots per inch). These settings are the same for all image formats except the icon type (ICO). The “Optional settings” for this only let you change the pixel size for height and width and DPI. One thing to note is a drop down box for the JPG and PNG image types titled “Quality”. The options for this include Pretty Good (default), Best quality, Good, Medium and Best Compression. I like to go with Best Quality.

After the “Optional settings” is the “Convert File” button you press to convert your input file to JPG or whatever image format you choose. Just to the right of this button is a link to the “terms” for the site. By clicking the “Convert File” button, it is implied that you agree to the “terms of service”. After clicking the button, you will be taken to another screen that tells you the conversion process is working. At the end, you will see a message that reads “Your file has been successfully converted”. Then you will see the converted file download dialog box pop up. Click the “Save” button to download and the file will be saved under the “C:\\Users\\[User]\\Downloads\\” folder.

www.Online-Convert.com is ideal for converting file formats to be used with a variety of application programming projects.
