File Converter – By Online-Convert.com
File Converter presents a relatively simpler interface than Image File Format Converter. It’s a free app you can download from App Store.
When you open the app, you will be greeted with conversion history and how the app works. Next tab is STATS, which shows the file size limit to upload a file and convert it for free (this is set to 100MB). On this screen, you can also see some files/images you have converted. On the Settings tab, you can see Delete History, version of app and support email.
Step #1. Tap on SELECT YOUR FILE (+) icon.
Step #2. Now you are on Select Input screen; the app gives you inputs like Cloud, Camera Roll, Take a picture, Record video, Record audio, Scan QR-Code, and Convert from URL.
You can select any input method; I have selected Camera Roll for this tutorial.
Step #3. “File Converter” would like to access your photos. Tap on OK and go ahead.
Step #4. Select any one photo from the Camera Roll and then tap on “Choose” option from the bottom right corner.
Step #5. Tap on Show All under Image converter. You can see all the image formats. Select any one format.
Step #6. Now tap on Start Conversion icon from the bottom.
The app will convert your image to the selected format. A tick mark appears in the circle.
Finally, you can save your file, share your file or delete the file.
Except for Image File Format Converter, the two apps have a better interface to convert your image formats on your iPhone or iPad. I prefer the last app if I were to change image formats on my iOS device.
