How to convert XCF to GIF?
You can convert XCF to GIF with MConverter in three easy steps:
Choose XCF files from your device
At the top of this page, drag and drop your XCFs. You can also click to select XCF files using your operating system's file picker. Another method is to press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V (⌘+V on Mac) to paste an XCF file you have copied to clipboard. Converting a folder with XCF files to GIF is also supported: simply paste or drag and drop it.
Click or tap on GIF from the list of target formats
Alternatively, you can use the search field to quickly find the format you need, whether it's GIF or something else.
Download your GIF files, after MConverter has finished processing them
There's an option to automatically download the converted GIF files, so you don't have to press the download icon for each GIF. You may see a share icon as well. Use it to directly share the GIFs with other apps.
About the formats
Image/Picture file formats
GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program)
XCF files are used by the free open-source image editor GIMP to store layers, paths, guides, and other information about images created with the program. XCF files are analogous to PSD files for Adobe Photoshop. If you do not have GIMP installed, you can view an XCF file by converting it to another image format, such as PNG or WebP.
Note: we do not support some files produced by GIMP 2.10 yet. GIMP 2.8 and older is fully supported.
Image/Picture file formats
GIF is a widely used image format which supports displaying animations. Its name is synonymous with short, silent, looping videos. However, due to limitations in the design of the GIF format, the animations cannot be very long or have lots of colors, without the file size becoming extremely large.
To make GIFs smaller in size without reducing quality, you can convert it to a newer, more efficient image format like WebP - which also supports looping animations. Alternatively, you can convert the GIF to a video.
Common questions about converting XCF to GIF
Can I convert XCF to GIF in bulk?
Yes, MConverter supports batch converting of multiple XCFs to GIFs simultaneously. You can even drag and drop folders containing XCFs to convert to GIF. Pasting XCF files and folders copied in the clipboard also works: use Ctrl+V.
Can I convert an XCF file to GIF, if its size is 1 GB?
Yes, with MConverter Premium you can convert big XCFs, up to 1 gigabyte each. The free version lets you convert files up to 200 MB. If you need to convert XCF files over 200 megabytes, try MConverter Premium.
Is converting XCFs to GIF safe with MConverter?
Yes, we encrypt your connection using industry standards. Plus, your XCF files are only accessible by you. 24 hours after the conversion completes, they are automatically deleted from MConverter’s servers. You can also delete your XCFs and other converted files immediately after finishing the conversion by clicking the bin icon. Join others who have trusted us to convert over 2,645,788 files so far.
How long does it take to convert XCF to GIF?
For most images, the wait should be less than a minute. If they are animated, it may take a little longer. However, MConverter also supports converting larger images, meaning that it could take a while (up to over an hour, for example).
