The file size limit for the original file that you upload is set by the file manager, although we are unable to confirm this limit. A 32 MB TIFF file was converted to JPEG by us without any problems. However, a 45 MB file did not work as it was too large.

This option allows you to rotate and resize images before you convert them. It isn’t as helpful as it could be, however, because it doesn’t give you a preview of how the rotated image will appear when it’s converted.

This method works via a web browser and can be used with almost any operating system like Windows, Linux, or Mac.
