The High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIC) is a format designed to hold images or sequences of images. In 2017, Apple made it the default format for photos on iOS 11 devices. HEIC was developed to reduce file size but retain the quality of the images. The biggest advantage of HEIC is that image files are half the size of JPEG files, with quality that’s promised to be even better. Additionally, HIEC can store batches of images at a time, just like GIF. It can also store image properties like dimensions and size, so you can crop pictures and undo the action later.
The downside of HEIC is that it’s not widely used beyond Apple devices. This format is native to iPhone and Mac, but if you’re a Windows user, there’s no way for you to open HEICs natively. An easy way to solve this problem is to change the file format to a more commonly used one, e.g. JPG. Read this guide to learn how to turn your HEIC files into JPGs.
