Converting multiple HEIC files to JPG format on a Mac can be a daunting task if you don’t know the right tools and techniques. Fear not, because in this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step.
So let’s dive in!
Step 1: Install GraphicConverter
The first thing you need to do is install a powerful image conversion tool called GraphicConverter. This software is specifically designed for Mac and supports various image formats, including HEIC and JPG.
You can download it from the official website and follow the installation instructions.
Step 2: Launch GraphicConverter
Once installed, launch GraphicConverter from your Applications folder or by searching for it in Spotlight. You will be greeted with a clean and intuitive interface that makes it easy to navigate through the conversion process.
Step 3: Add HEIC Files to Convert
To add your HEIC files, go to the “File” menu and choose “Open”. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Command + O. Browse to the folder containing your HEIC files and select all the ones you want to convert.
If your HEIC files are scattered across different folders, you can select multiple folders at once using Command + Shift + O instead of manually adding each folder one by one.
Step 4: Select Output Format as JPG
With your HEIC files loaded into GraphicConverter, it’s time to specify the output format as JPG. To do this, go to the “File” menu again and choose “Convert & Modify”.
A dialog box will appear with various options for converting your images.
In the dialog box, make sure the “To Folder” option is selected and choose a destination folder where you want the converted JPG files to be saved. Then, click on the “Options” button next to it.
In the options window, navigate to the “Format” tab and select “JPEG/JFIF” from the dropdown menu. You can also adjust other settings such as image quality if needed.
Once done, click “OK” to close the options window.
Step 5: Start Conversion
Now that everything is set up, it’s time to start the conversion process. Click on the “Convert” button in the main dialog box, and GraphicConverter will begin converting your HEIC files to JPG format.
The progress of each file will be displayed in real-time.
If you have a large number of HEIC files, you can choose to convert them in batches by selecting a limited number of files at a time. This will ensure a smoother and faster conversion process.
Step 6: Check Converted JPG Files
Once GraphicConverter has finished converting all your selected HEIC files to JPG format, you can go ahead and check the output folder. All your converted files should now be in JPG format and ready for use.
It’s always a good practice to double-check a few converted images before deleting your original HEIC files. This way, you can ensure that everything went smoothly during the conversion process.
Converting multiple HEIC files to JPG on Mac doesn’t have to be complicated. By following these steps with GraphicConverter, you can efficiently convert your images without losing quality.
Remember to always keep a backup of your original files before performing any conversion. Happy converting!
