About Image to Base64 Converter

The image to base64 converter is a free online tool that will convert your images to base64 format. You can either import an image from your device or from an external URL.

About Base64

Base64 is an encoding algorithm that converts any characters, binary data, and even images or audio files into a readable string. You can then embed your base64 string directly into your HTML images or use it in your CSS files.

The Base64 is a string representation of your actual image, hence the web browser doesn't need to fetch the image as it is already there.

You can use the Base64 string directly in src attribute of your <img /> HTML element. Or, directly in the background-image CSS property, example :

background-image: url(YOUR BASE64 STRING);

How to use the Image to Base64 Converter?

1. You can either import an image from your local device or use an external URL (use remote URL).

2. Hit the "Convert" button to convert your image.

3. You get the results in 2 boxes. The first is to use in your HTML files for <img /> tags, and the second is to use in your CSS files.
