Convert PEF to GIF online, for free.
Pentax Electronic File (PEF) is a raw image file format produced by Pentax digital cameras, which stores an unedited and uncompressed image. The benefit of working with a raw image is that it provides high-quality images, the ability to recover information, ease in making corrections, and many other advantages and benefits.
Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation provides PENTAX PHOTO Laboratory software, which is the default for opening PEF. Another common program for viewing PEF is PENTAX PHOTO Browser. A non-Pentax program for opening PEF is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
Many other programs can open this file type successfully. For both Microsoft Windows and macOS, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom works well for opening and converting PEF. On Linux/Unix, darktable is open source, cross-platform, and free. PEF is usually converted to Adobe Digital Negative Raw Image (DNG), Tagged Image File Format (PEF to TIFF), JPG (PEF to JPEG), or Portable Network Graphics (PEF to PNG) file formats.

Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) is a type of bitmap file format that relies on pixels to form simple images using the RGB color model. Unlike the uncompressed BMP file format, GIF uses lossless compression and supports animation without audio. The most common use of GIF is in animated form as advertisements, emotion-based replies on social media, and memes, which often go viral on the Internet.
Almost all web browsers support GIF, which gives it a distinct advantage over other image formats, such as PNG. Furthermore, GIF opens on Apple’s mobile devices, including iPhone and iPad, which makes it more popular than Adobe Flash.
GIFs open easily on almost all image-viewer applications, web browsers, and operating systems. To open a GIF for the purposes of editing it, use an application such as Adobe Photoshop. On Windows, open GIFs with Microsoft Photos, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Roxio Creator NXT Pro, and others. On macOS, use Adobe image viewers and editors, including Adobe Illustrator.
