The HEIC format came into the sight of people mostly in 2017 when Apple adopted HEIC as the new format for photos taken by iPhone running iOS 11. This shift was made to reduce the storage space photos take on iPhones. HEIC format may become the next trending image format. However, the use of HEIC format on the iPhone is now causing some new issues. For example, HEIC images are not opening on Windows PC and some apps. Here come the demands to convert HEIC to JPG on PC. Today, we will dig into this.
Before we get started, let's learn more about HEIC Image.
HEIC, the abbreviation of High-Efficiency Image File Format, is a kind of image format that provides the same image quality but take only half storage compared with JPEG file (also known as JPG). Apple adopted this format for photos taken by iPhones running iOS 11 or later. This format is also supported by some camera manufacturers like Canon, promising a wider application in the future. If you want to have a closer look at the HEIC format, read its introduction on Wikipedia here.
Though the HEIC format has been widely discussed and known since Apple adopted it on iPhone, it still faces compatibility issues in most cases. Like HEIC images are not opening on Windows PC, Android devices, and even some apps. Thus there is a growing demand for image converters that can convert HEIC to JPG on PC. Below are two direct and indirect ways to convert the HEIC photos.
When Apple announced that they used HEIC as the new format for iPhone photos. There came a great amount of HEIC image converters. EaseUS MobiMover also integrates a built-in HEIC converter. EaseUS MobiMover can convert images from HEIC to JPG format fast and safely. And it can work without the Internet, thus it will not send your images to a server to process. There is no risk of privacy leaks even if the images you want to convert contain sensitive information. Below is a detailed guide to convert HEIC to JPG with EaseUS MobiMover.
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your PC with a USB cable and go to "Backup Manager" > "Back up" in EaseUS MobiMover.
Step 2. Check the content you need to backup and tap "Select" to change the iPhone backup location to the external hard drive. Then click "One-Click Backup".
Step 3. Click "Convert" or "Start All" to convert HEIC photos to JPG. After the HEIC to JPG conversion completes, you can click "View" button to check the converted JPG photo on your PC.
If your HEIC images are taken by iPhone and then you want to view or edit them on PC, EaseUS MobiMover can do the work for you in another different way. It transfers almost all types of files between PC and iOS devices, as an iPhone data transfer tool. To solve the potential compatibility issue, it offers the option to transcode files during transfer. When transferring photos from iPhone to PC, you can choose to save original or JPG format on your PC. See below for the detailed tutorial.
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer running Windows 7 and later or Mac OS X 10.7 and later. Launch EaseUS MobiMover, choose "Phone to PC" on the main screen and click the "Next" button to move on.
Step 2. Select the "Pictures" category as you want to copy from your iPhone to your computer. It's the right choice for you to transfer other supported file types together with photos from your iPhone to the computer to make a backup.
Step 3. Click the "Transfer" button to start transferring photos from your iPhone to the computer. Depending on the size of the files, it may take seconds or a while to import pictures from your iPhone to your computer. Wait patiently for the process to finish and check the items in the selected folder after that.
It is really convenient to use EaseUS MobiMover to transfer and convert HEIC images. As we all know, it is not easy to transfer photos from iPhone to PC without iTunes. EaseUS MobiMover completes two tasks at once.
Windows do not support viewing HEIC by default. To view HEIC files with the Photo app on Windows, you can install two extensions from Microsoft Store, HEIF Image Extensions and HEVC Video Extensions. HELF Image Extensions is free, and the HEVC Video Extensions costs $0.99 per month.
After you get the two extensions, you can edit the HEIC images and then save them in a JPG file to successfully convert its format.
We have introduced two ways to change the format of HEIC images with EaseUS MobiMover, which is safe and efficient. Using Photos apps with two extensions is also an option for you. There are also some other online HEIC image converters, and we will explore and choose some to review later.
