Alchemy is an open-source file converter (built on Electron and React). It also supports operations like merging files together into a pdf. We hope to support more operations and file types soon!

  • Beautifully simple. Super easy, drag-and-drop interface for converting/merging files
  • Merge files. Merge multiple images into one pdf, you can even change the file order
  • Convert files. Batch-convert multiple files to a variety of file types



  1. Simply open the app by clicking on the menubar icon, or by hitting ⌘-⇧-8.
  2. Then just drag your image files into the application and select any options.
  3. Finally, click the convert/merge to seamlessly convert them into a variety of formats, or merge them into a pdf or gif. You can also hold while dropping to merge the files into a pdf immediately.
