Convert JFIF to PNG online, for free.
JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF) is a simple file type that facilitates the exchange of JPEG images. The JFIF standard includes JPG, JPEG, JPE, JIF, and JFI. In essence, you can rename a JFIF to any of these file types and the file’s compression and structure will remain the same.
The default program for opening JFIF is XnView MP, which is free and works across platforms. On Microsoft Windows (Windows), open JFIF with any of the following programs: Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Media Encoder, Nero Multimedia Suite, or PhotoFiltre Studio.
Even though JFIF is considered to be a minimal file format, it is important to remember that files with this extension are indistinguishable from JPG. The only difference is the spelling of the file extension. Sometimes, Windows 10 will save a JPG file as a JFIF by default. Instructions for changing this are available here.

Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster-based file type that compresses images for portability. PNG images can have RGB or RGBA colors and support transparency, which makes them perfect for use in icons, or graphic designs. PNG also supports animations with better transparency (try our GIF to APNG). The benefits of using PNG are Plus, PNG is an open format that uses lossless compression.
Generally, PNG files will open in your operating system’s default image viewer. PNG files are also easily viewable on all web browsers. If you are having trouble opening PNG files, use our PNG to JPG, PNG to WebP, or PNG to BMP converters.
Alternative programs such as GIMP or Adobe Photoshop are useful for opening and editing PNG files. PNG files are a bit larger than other file types, so exercise caution when adding them to a web page. One interesting feature of PNG files is the ability to create transparency in the image, particularly a transparent background. To accomplish this, try this transparent background tool.
