How to Convert HEIC to PNG

New iPhones and iPads now take pictures using the High-Efficiency Image Format, creating files with the .heic extension. Although HEIC has many advantages, it might be inconvenient for Windows users, as there’s no built-in way to open HEICs in Windows. One solution is to change the file format to a more accessible one, like PNG.
HEIC is the file format name used by the new HEIF standard. In this format, pictures use less storage space while remaining high-quality. HEIC also supports 16-bit color images, which is twice as many as JPEG.
PNG (Portable Network Graphic) is a compressed graphic format. It uses lossless compression, so no blurring occurs in the images when they’re saved as PNGs. PNG files are usually used to store graphics on websites. It’s supported by most browsers and editing programs and is also highly compatible with Windows.
The Movavi Converter will help you convert HEIC to PNG. Download the app for Mac or PC and learn how to change your files from HEIC to PNG in a few simple steps.
