What is Base64?

Base64 is a group of similar binary-to-text encoding schemes that represent binary data in an ASCII string format by translating it into a radix-64 representation. The term Base64 originates from a specific MIME content transfer encoding.

Base64 encoding schemes are commonly used when there is a need to encode binary data that needs to be stored and transferred over media that are designed to deal with ASCII. This is to ensure that the data remain intact without modification during transport. Base64 is commonly used in a number of applications including email via MIME, and storing complex data in XML.

Convert image to Base64 online and use the result string as data URI, img src, CSS background-url, and others. Sometimes you have to send or output an image within a text document (for example, HTML, CSS, JSON, XML), but you cannot do this because binary characters will damage the syntax of the text document. To prevent this, for example, you can encode image to Base64 and embed it using the data URI. If you are looking for the reverse process, check Base64 to Image.
