HEIC is a file format Apple uses to compress images on its devices so the images are smaller yet retain their original quality. While that’s a really good feature for Apple users, it doesn’t seem to be so great for other people. When you transfer an HEIC image over to a non-Apple device, you will face issues viewing the image as the format is not widely supported.
Fortunately, there are a few third-party apps that help you convert your HEIC images to other standard formats, such as JPG, so that everybody can see your images. In this week’s roundup, we cover four apps from our Software Discovery section that help convert HEIC to other image formats.
