Image File Format Conversion API: How to Convert an Image to GIF Format using Java

If you’re looking to incorporate a GIF format conversion tool, look no further — we’ve got you covered with our GIF Conversion API. You can take advantage of this API easily by following steps below to implement ready-to-run code provided in Java.

To begin installing the Java SDK with Maven, first add a reference to the repository in pom.xml:

<repositories>
<repository>
<id>jitpack.io</id>
<url>https://jitpack.io</url>
</repository>
</repositories>

Directly after that, add one to the dependency in pom.xml:

<dependencies>
<dependency>
<groupId>com.github.Cloudmersive</groupId>
<artifactId>Cloudmersive.APIClient.Java</artifactId>
<version>v4.25</version>
</dependency>
</dependencies>

Almost done — time to add in the import classes & include the file conversion function:

// Import classes:
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiClient;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiException;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.Configuration;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.auth.*;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.ConvertApi;
ApiClient defaultClient = Configuration.getDefaultApiClient();// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
ApiKeyAuth Apikey = (ApiKeyAuth) defaultClient.getAuthentication("Apikey");
Apikey.setApiKey("YOUR API KEY");
// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)
//Apikey.setApiKeyPrefix("Token");
ConvertApi apiInstance = new ConvertApi();
File imageFile = new File("/path/to/inputfile"); // File | Image file to perform the operation on. Common file formats such as PNG, JPEG are supported.
try {
byte[] result = apiInstance.convertToGif(imageFile);
System.out.println(result);
} catch (ApiException e) {
System.err.println("Exception when calling ConvertApi#convertToGif");
e.printStackTrace();
}

All set. If you’re short a Cloudmersive API key, you can head to our website (Home — Cloudmersive APIs) and create a free account with a limit of 800 API calls per month.
