Converting SID to EMF

The SID extension is attached to images created on geospatial software developed by LizardTech. The company specializes in compressing, processing and distributing high-resolution geospatial data, and is mostly known for creating the MrSID (Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database) technology. SID files are considered rare and can only be accessed on LizardTech proprietary software.

EMF (Enhanced Metafile) is a format used by the Windows operating system to store spooling information connected to printing. The term "spooling" comes from the acronym for "simultaneous peripheral operations online" and represents the creation of a list of tasks scheduled for completion by Windows at a later time. EMF files can contain vector or bitmap components and they replaced the original WMF (Windows Metafile) format, using a 32-bit structure instead of a 16-bit one and thus providing better quality of printing.

So, how to change SID into EMF?

The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter.

Start reaConverter and load all the .sid files you intend to convert into .emf 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 SIDs 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 .emf files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.

Select EMF as Output Format

Then pick the EMF 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!
