Convert Image to Base64 in a Few Clicks!
Base64 is an encoding algorithm that converts text, binary data, images, and even sound files into a readable string—which can then be saved or transferred through a network without losing data. The great thing about this file type is that a Base64 string can be easily converted back to its original binary form.
By encoding the data, you can improve the chances of it being processed correctly by different systems. One important use of Base64 is in the context of email, where some character sets are not supported. Another use is in the context of URLs, to encode data that might otherwise cause confusion with URL-interpretation schemes (HTTP, FTP), such as spaces and dots. A Base64 file contains only the letters A-Z, numbers 0-9, and the characters + (plus) and / (forward slash). This guide will show you how to convert an image to Base64 quickly, safely, and without any hassle. To start converting your files straight away, sign up for DoNotPay! Our File Converter supports over a hundred different file types and converts them in seconds, with a single click!
Using an online converter is the simplest and most common way to convert any type of file, including image-specific file types (JPG, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, etc.) and Base64. All you need is to upload your image and click on the Convert button. In most cases, your files will be ready in less than a minute.
Since finding the right file converter for your needs can be difficult, we’ve made a list of the commonly used image to Base64 converters:

Another way to convert image to Base64 is using third-party software, such as:
- Base64 File Converter
- Binary Image File Base64 Translator
All these programs can be downloaded from the internet for free. Some of them are based on command-line and don’t have a graphical user interface. To perform the conversion through such software, you’ll need to use specific commands.
You can never be too careful when using an online file converter. Some common issues with using one to convert your files are the following:
- Low quality of converted files—Some online file converters are not well-made, which can result in bad fonts or even missing text within your converted files
- The security risk posed by uploading files to a third-party online service—Some online file converters do not upload your files to a secure server which makes them easy to steal by hackers
- The risk of downloading viruses—Files downloaded through the website could contain malicious code, which could then be used to attack your computer.
It is important to make sure you are not putting sensitive information at risk, so consider taking the following measures when using an online file converter:
- Check the About section for an email address or contact form—If the site doesn't have contact info, that's a good sign that they're not actively looking for feedback or input from their customer base
- Double-check the language used on the website—If the English is bad, it’s a clear sign that the devs haven’t put too much thought into the site, or the converter, for that matter.
- Find customer reviews on Google—See what other users have to say about the tool
- Find information on software updates—If the site isn’t updated for a while, that’s a good sign that they're not making safety a priority
