Convert CDR to GIF via Java
Transform CDR into GIF using native Java APIs without needing any image editor or 3rd-party libraries.
How to Convert CDR to GIF Using Java
In order to convert CDR to GIF, we’ll use Aspose.Imaging for Java API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use image manipulation and conversion API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from Maven and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.
<repository> <id>AsposeJavaAPI</id> <name>Aspose Java API</name> <url>https://repository.aspose.com/repo/</url> </repository>
<dependency> <groupId>com.aspose</groupId> <artifactId>aspose-imaging</artifactId> <version>version of aspose-imaging API</version> <classifier>jdk16</classifier> </dependency>
Steps to Convert CDR to GIF via Java
Developers can easily load & convert CDR files to GIF in just a few lines of code.
- Load CDR file with Image.load method
- Create & set the instance of required subclass of ImageOptionsBase (e.g. BmpOptions, PngOptions, etc.)
- Call the Image.save method
- Pass file path with GIF extension & object of ImageOptionsBase class
Before running the conversion example code, make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- JDK 1.6 or higher is installed.

CDR What is CDR File Format
A CDR file is a vector drawing image file that is natively created with CorelDRAW for storing digital image encoded and compressed. Such a drawing file contains text, lines, shapes, images, colours and effects for vector representation of image contents. CDR files can be opened with CorelDRAW as the primary application and can also be converted to other formats such as PDF, JPG, PNG, BMP and AI. It can be used for representation of various graphics data like brochures, tabloids, envelopes, and postcards. Besides CorelDRAW, other Corel products such as Corel Paintshop Pro and CorelDRAW Graphics suite can also open the CDR file formats.Read More
GIF What is GIF File Format
A GIF or Graphical Interchange Format is a type of highly compressed image. Owned by Unisys, GIF uses the LZW compression algorithm that does not degrade the image quality. For each image GIF typically allow up to 8 bits per pixel and up to 256 colours are allowed across the image. In contrast to a JPEG image, which can display up to 16 million colours and fairly touches the limits of the human eye. Back when the internet emerged, GIFs remained the best choice because they required low bandwidth and compatible for the graphics that consume solid areas of colour. An animated GIF combines numerous images or frames into a single file and displays them in a sequence to generate an animated clip or a short video. The colour limitations are up to 256 for each frame and are likely to be the least suitable for reproducing other images and photographs with colour gradient.Read More
