HEIC is a new image format. It is popular among iPhone users thanks to Apple adopting the format with iOS 11 in 2017. Technically, HEIC images appear within HEIF containers, although the terms do get sometimes used interchangeably. Regardless, a HEIC file contains a single compressed image made up of a pixel grid.
A JPG is similar to a HEIC. The JPG format is older but is far more prevalent than HEIC. However, the benefit of HEIC is that it can be about half the size of a JPG while containing the same perceived image quality. This attribute alone is why Apple is betting big that HEIC could overtake the JPG format in popularity someday.
Since HEIC is such a new format, many applications and websites don’t support it. Meanwhile, nearly every application and website you find will support JPG. This alone is reason enough to want to convert HEIC to JPG.
Likewise, you might want to share a HEIC image with a friend or family member. If that person has an older phone or computer, there is a possibility they won’t even be able to view that image. You could convert that HEIC to JPG to save them the hassle of needing to perform the conversion themselves.
If you’re ready to convert HEIC files to JPG files, the steps couldn’t be simpler. The tool on this page can perform as many conversions as needed for free. You don’t need to sign up for anything or give us your email. You also don’t need to worry about receiving watermarked images, as our system doesn’t do that.
First, hit the “UPLOAD FILES” button and navigate to one or up to 20 HEIC files. If you’re on a computer, you can also drag and drop your images onto the “Drop Your Files Here” field.
When your files are uploaded, the conversion automatically begins. You can watch in real time as our server turns the HEIC image into a JPG. When it’s done, you’ll see a “DOWNLOAD” button. Hit that and you’ll get your JPG.
If you’ve uploaded more than one image, you can wait until all the images have finished converting. Once that happens, hit the “DOWNLOAD ALL” button to get a ZIP file containing all your converted JPGs.
Ready to convert some more? Just hit the “CLEAR QUEUE” button and repeat the steps. Our tool will remain free no matter how many times you use it.
Our conversion service is completely safe and secure. The tool is fully automated, so no one will see the images you upload or the conversions our server creates. Additionally, the server deletes all uploads and conversions after one hour, so you know your images won’t be preserved.
Also, you don’t need to worry about losing your original HEIC images. Those files remain safe on your phone or computer. Should you need them again, they will be there!
