# Convert an Image From One Format To Another¶

## Problem¶

You have an image, “Patches with ball.jpg”, stored as a jpeg, but wish to have it in exr format.

## Solution¶

import Draft

img = Draft.Image.ReadFromFile( 'Patches with ball.jpg' )
img.WriteToFile( 'Patches with ball.exr' )


## Discussion¶

Converting an image from one format to another is as simple as reading in the image and saving it in a new file with the appropriate file extension. Draft automatically converts the image based on the file extension specified. Draft supports the following image extensions: .jpg (or .jpeg), .png, .tif (or .tiff), .exr, .dpx, .gif, .bmp, .hdr, .tga.
