You can import these files to Kili:

Supported image formats

Native support
Here are the natively supported formats for image :

.png; .jpeg/.jpg; .gif; .bmp; .webp; .ico;


In Image semantic segmentation projects, the interactive segmentation tool does not work with the following formats:

  • .ico
  • .webp
  • .gif
  • .tif/.tiff

Other image formats

  • Medical (DICOMs, .dcm). To import DICOM images you can use this tutorial.

  • The only .tif files that are currently supported by Kili are GeoTIFF files (.tif files with geospatial metadata). The standard tiff format (.tif/.tiff) is not natively supported by Kili. We recommend converting files to .png format. Imagemagick can help you do that.

  • For other custom or specific formats, you can try to add them to a sample project. If the image doesn't load, it means you need to convert it using Imagemagick.
