    FAQs:

    What is Base64 encoding?
    Base64 encoding is a method of representing binary data, such as images, in ASCII format. It converts binary data into a text string, making it easier to transmit and store data that cannot be directly represented as plain text.
    Why would I use Base64 encoding for images?
    Base64 encoding allows images to be embedded directly into code or transmitted as text strings, eliminating the need for separate image files and simplifying data transmission and storage processes.
    Can I specify the filename for the downloaded Base64 text file?
    Yes, our converter provides a text field where users can enter their desired filename before downloading the Base64 text file.
    Are there any limitations on file size or image dimensions?
    Our converter does not impose any limitations on file size or image dimensions. However, larger files may take longer to process, depending on the user's device.
    Is the conversion process secure?
    Yes, the conversion process is secure. All processing is done locally on the user's device, and no image data is transmitted to our servers. Users can convert their images to Base64 strings safely and privately.
