Image to data-URI

Convert an image to a Data-URI online.

Embed small images as text directly within your HTML/CSS to improve loading speed (less HTTP requests). Output includes code for HTML <img> tag & CSS background url();


  • The file size increases by approximately 30% which may be offset by serving as part of a compressed (gzip / deflate) file.
  • IEv8 has the lowest maximum data URI size of 32768 Bytes. Upload is limited to that maximum. Because of the approximate 30% increase in the conversion it is possible the result is larger than IEv8 can actually handle.
  • Data URI's don't work in IE 5-7, but are supported in IE 8. Use an IE-only stylesheet or use data-URIs only for progressive enhancements.
