Convert GIF to Base64 online and use it as a generator, which provides ready-made examples for data URI, img src, CSS background-url, and others. The GIF to Base64 converter is identical to Image to Base64, with the only difference that it forces the mime type to be “image/gif” (even if the uploaded file has a different content type or it cannot be detected). Please note that the GIF to Base64 encoder accepts any images types with a size of up to 50 MB. If you are looking for the reverse process, check Base64 to GIF.
