AVIF stands for AV1 Image Format, and its extension or format is .avif. It is the next generation image format which allows extreme compression of images. AVIF’s compression is superior to its predecessor WEBP (.webp) which can compress JPEG up to 50%. We provide AVIF online converter to do this. AVIF can compress images up to 70% of its original size. Brilliant!AVIF is derived from keyframes of AV1 Video, maintained and developed by Alliance for Open Media along with Google, Cisco, and Xiph.org.

Comparison with Other Image Formats
Because AVIF uses the AV1 compression algorithms designed for videos by Alliance for Open Media, and has ever since been adopted by big tech companies like Netflix, the compression difference is so extreme. We analysed an image in the two popular formats .jpeg and .webp against .avif which was converted with our AVIF converter online tool. Here is our result:
JPEG Original Image
The size of the original (uncompressed) JPEG image format size is 61.1 kB.
WEBP Image Comprpession
The size of the same image compressed as WEBP image format size with 50% compression is 21.0 kB (65.63% compression).
AVIF Image Comprpession
The size of the same image compressed as AVIF image format size with 50% compression is 11.0 kB (82.0% compression).
Although AVIF is a new image feature, it has been supported in Chrome 85, Firefox is currently working on the full support, but can also be enabled by entering about:config in your Firefox browser and searching fro image.avif.enable and setting this parameter to true. Android will also support this in its next updates.
