Convert DJVU to PNG online, for free.
DjVu, pronounced déjà vu, is a file type that offers strong compression for high-resolution images. While similar to TIFF and PDF file types, DjVu offers much stronger compression than either of those. The most common use of DJVU files is to store scanned documents, which makes it more of a document file type than an image file. DjVu has the advantage of compressing files without sacrificing quality. However, the disadvantage is that special software is required to open DjVu.
A special software program is required to open a DjVu file. You must download this software to your computer, but fortunately, it’s free.

In addition, a page-specific converter is available that allows you to set the level of quality and compression. The name of this program is DjVu Converter.
