Change Your HIEC files to JPEG or PNG Online

Nowadays JPEG is present in every image workflow, from image editors social networks, browsers, email clients, and virtually every piece of hardware or software that can show pictures. JPEG is an open file format standard and still the most popular image format on the web. Moreover, HEIF and HEVC is clouded by expensive patent licensing concerns, which means there could be legal implications to implementing HEIF support, particularly in paid software or a hardware product.

IntroductionHEIC, .heic is a filename extension for the High Efficiency Image File Format. HEIC files are created by the camera applications of modern iPhone and Android devices, and by professional digital cameras. In June 2017, Apple announced the support for HEIF in macOS High Sierra and iOS 11.JPEG compression is used in a number of image file formats. This format is used in many digital cameras. It is a popular method of lossy compression for digital images. The degree of image compression can be altered, allowing to have control over file size and image quality. A JPG can’t have a transparent background so they are always have solid background.PNG is an extensible file format for the lossless storage of raster images. Compared to JPEG, PNG can have a transparent background and is generally larger and higher quality. PNG is often used to save logos, icons and other images where a transparent background is preferred.

Exif metadata, which can be found if you open image file’s properties, includes a range of settings such as ISO speed, shutter speed, aperture, white balance, camera model, date and time, lens type, focal length and more.

JPEG (.jpg or .jpeg. file extension) stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, named after a committee of developers who created it.

Q: What is PNG?

The Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format was designed to replace the older and simpler GIF format and, to some extent, the much more complex TIFF format. PNG is an open file format for the lossless storage of raster images. PNG provides a patent-free replacement for GIF and can also replace many common uses of TIFF. Indexed-color, grayscale, and truecolor images are supported, plus an optional alpha channel for transparency.

    I have some HEIC pix that won’t convert. Your site simply says “error;heic_4de7169f23”. What does this error mean? Is there anything I can do to get around this problem? Would you like me to send you some of these original files can discover the cause of the problem?

      Update. I had a problem, posted a question and had an answer in less than a day. I was very happy and went back to try again, then realized the fault was all mine. (I was incorrectly choosing the thumbnails and not the actual files.) Today I converted the 10 files in seconds and the system is great. So good system and good support – thank you!
