Converting CPI to GIF

The CPI extension is attached to vector files created using Calamus, a piece of desktop publishing software released in the late 1980s. Calamus was designed for the Atari ST, which was an innovative brand of home computers at the time, and was one of the first vector handling programs to include its own proprietary vector formats, as well as support virtual objects and frames. Since its release, Calamus had several subsequent upgrades and its latest version is Calamus SL2006.

GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) files are widely popular due to their ability to store animations and images in a relatively small size. Their compression algorithm implies the use of a limited color range (up to 256 colors), which means GIF files are great for storing static and animated images of a small size — like logos, icons or avatars, especially if you plan to transfer them or upload them online. GIF images, however, are usually not suitable for high-quality image rendering or printing.

So, how to change CPI into GIF?

Load CPI Files

Start reaConverter and load all the .cpi files you intend to convert into .gif because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.

Select CPIs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.

Choose Output Folder

Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .gif files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.

Select GIF as Output Format

Then pick the GIF as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.

Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!
