HEIC Image Format HEIC Converter
The HEIC format was developed by the Moving Pictures Expert Group. However, it is particularly associated with Apple, which adopted the format for iPads and iPhones in 2017. Photos taken on iPhones and iPads will automatically be saved as HEIC files. The name stands for High Efficiency Image Container, and like the name suggests, they are container files that can hold images, videos, and even audio and captions. HEIC files also include metadata and the ability to revert to the original image after editing.
Apple adopted the HEIC format because it can save high quality photographs in a much smaller file size than the JPEG format. This allows users to save many more photos, and also to share them easily. The ‘burst’ feature on iOS takes multiple images in the same HEIC file. You can open HEIC files on any Apple device, but also in Windows 10 and later using Microsoft Photos with the HEIF Image Extensions browser extension, and with most photo editors, such as Adobe Photoshop and GIMP.
AVIF Image Format AVIF Converter
AVIF files are a relatively new format used for digital images, first introduced in 2019. The name is short for ‘AV1 Image File Format’. It’s an open file-type that’s not owned by any one tech company. AVIF files are designed to improve on formats like JPG, PNG and GIF, in part because they can offer better image quality but with much smaller file sizes. Because it’s such a new format, you may not be able to open AVIF files in all image editors and viewers. However, support is increasing, and AVIF files can now be opened by some web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari. Apple, Android, and Linux devices with the most recent operating systems can also open AVIF files in their Photos apps. If you want to edit your AVIF files, the latest versions of Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop with the AVIF plug-in, Microsoft Paint, and GIMP are applications you could use.
