Q: "What is HEIC, and how do I convert HEIC to JPG on Windows PC?"
A: HEIC, the short for High-Efficiency Image File Container, is a new photo format introduced by Apple on its iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra systems. Compared with the old JPG file format, the HEIC format stores high-quality images with smaller sizes. Currently, this format is only available for opening on Apple devices. If you wish to open it on Windows or upload it to websites, you'll need to convert them to JPG or PNG.
On Windows 10, you can directly download codec software in the app store to open HEIC files. While if you're not using Windows 10, you'll need some free utility software to help. If you have no idea on which to use, here are some recommendations.
The first way to convert HEIC to JPG on PC is to use this HEIF Image Extension, which can read and write files that use the High Efficiency Image File format. These files have a .heic or .heif file extension. Note that this extension currently only available on Windows 10 or higher. If you prefer this way, follow these steps to convert HEIC to JPG on Windows 10.
Step 1. Head to Microsoft Store to download HEIF Image Extensions on your computer.
Step 2. Open HEIC files with Windows's built-in Photos app.
Step 3. After installing the extension, you can open your HEIC files with the Photos app.
Note: If you have set another application to open your photos by default, you'll need to right-click on your image and choose "Open with" and select "Photos."
Some online converters like heictojpg.com can help you do a quick conversion. But considered the privacy issue, we don't recommend uploading any private photos or documents to online services for conversion because the data you upload will be stored on the cloud server of the website, and you can't monitor or control who uses it (and how). This will threaten your personal information. But if you stick to online converters, there are some recommendations:
That's all converters that can be used to change HEIC to JPG. We hope more software and applications will gain support for HEIC files. But before that day comes, you have to use third-party tools or online services.
