Convert GIF to JPG in Node.js - File Conversion API

In the recent article, we implemented the functionality to convert GIF to PNG. In this blog post, we will learn how to convert GIF to JPG/JPEG using GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud SDK for Node.js. This file conversion API is easy to use and JavaScript developers can perform its integration procedure without any third-party dependency. In addition to Cloud SDKs, you can leverage REST APIs exposed by GroupDocs.Conversion. Therefore, we will go through the whole implementation of the functionality and you will be able to build your GIF to JPG converter by the end of this guide.

We will walk through the following sections in this tutorial:

File Conversion API Installation

The installation process of this enterprise-level Cloud library is quite simple. Once it is installed, you can make API calls to meet your application needs. In order to install GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud SDK for Node.js, please run the following command into the terminal/CMD:

npm install groupdocs-conversion-cloud

The next step is to set up this GIF to JPG converter library. For this purpose, you will need to create an application an obtain the generated API credentials (Client Secret, Client API) from the API Cloud dashboard. Please visit this guide if you face any difficulty in this process.

Convert GIF to JPG in Node.js

Let’s write a few lines of source code in JavaScript to perform GIF to JPG conversion programmatically. We have uploaded a source GIF file to the API Cloud dashboard which you can upload manually or programmatically.

The following steps demonstrate how to convert GIF to JPG in Node.js:

  • Get the groupdocs-conversion-cloud module into your project.
  • Set your API credentials(i.e. Client Secret, Client API).
  • Now, invoke the fromKeys function of the ConvertApi class and pass the API credentials.
  • Next, Initialize an instance of the ConvertSettings class.
  • Assign the values to the properties of the ConvertSettings class such as storageName, filePath, outputPath, and format.
  • Instantiate an instance of the ConvertDocumentRequest class with the object of the ConvertSettings class.
  • Call the convertDocument method to convert GIF to JPG in Node.js.

You can get the following code snippet that will convert GIF to JPG:

Once you run the server file, you will see a generated JPG file in the API Cloud dashboard as shown in the image below:
