Image file size can be up to 200M. You can use file analyzer to get source image's detailed information such as image size, resolution, quality and transparent color.
2. Set target image format, image quality and image size. You can use the original image size or select the "Change width and height" option and enter a custom image size. The format is [width]x[height], for example: 1920x1080. The image quality option only works on a few image formats such as JPG, WEBP or AVIF. The value ranges from 1 (lowest image quality and highest compression) to 100 (best quality but least effective compression). If this value is blank, the converter will use the estimated quality of your input image if it can be determined, otherwise 92. The target image format can be JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, HEIC, BMP, PS, PSD, WEBP, TGA, DDS, EXR, J2K, PNM, SVG, etc.

|Introduction||A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor of either a digital camera, image scanner, or motion picture film scanner. Raw files are named so because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.||The DirectDraw Surface container file format (uses the filename extension DDS), is a Microsoft format for storing data compressed with the proprietary S3 Texture Compression (S3TC) algorithm, which can be decompressed in hardware by GPUs.|
|Technical details||Raw files contain the information required to produce a viewable image from the camera's sensor data. The structure of raw files often follows a common pattern: a short file header, camera sensor metadata, an image thumbnail and the sensor image data etc,||The DirectDraw Surface format is useful for storing graphical textures and cubic environment maps as a data file, both compressed and uncompressed. The Microsoft Windows file extension for this data format is '.dds'.|
