Additional Information

Here are a few more tips and tricks related to HEIC files and their conversion:

  • HEIC vs. JPG: HEIC (High-Efficiency Image Format) is a relatively new image format that offers better compression and quality compared to JPG. However, not all devices and platforms support it yet, which is why converting to JPG can be useful.

    Preview will convert them all at once.
