Description HEIC is a file format used for storing both individual images and sequences of images. It came to prominence as the default photo storage format on Apple iPhone devices from iOS 11 onwards (replacing JPG) and macOS High Sierra. Developed by the MPEG group, HEIC files are generally 50% the size of JPEG files, but with higher visual quality. They also allow users to store metadata and image edits alongside the photo, and more than one photo in a file (useful for "Live" photos).

Technical Details A .heic file is a container, indicating that the stored media is a type of High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) file, as defined by the High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) specification. Like JPG files, the HEIF specs detail that image data is stored using discrete cosine transform (DCT), which results in lossy compression. However, becuase HEIF supports a larger variety of block sizes for DCT (from 4x4 to 32x32), the resulting compression is more efficient, leading to smaller files sizes. HEIF also supports animations, thumbnails, image edits, sequences, metadata and extra image data such as alpha plane or a depth map.

Description JPG's are often used for web sites and email as they are generally smaller file sizes as they are lossy meaning that some image quality is lost when the JPG is compressed and saved. The resultant 'lossy' file means that quality can never be recovered. The JPG format is often used in digital camera memory cards. The JPG file is a great format as it often manages to compress files to 1/10 of the size of the original file which is especially good for saving on bandwidth.

Technical Details JPG is a graphical file format for editing still images, it offers a symmetrical compression technique which is processor intensive and time consiming in both compression and decompression. JPEG is a joint standard of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T T.81) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 10918-1). JPEG involves a lossy compression mechanism using discrete cosine transform (DCT). Compression rates of 100:1 can be achieved, although the loss is noticeable at that level. Compression rates of 10:1 or 20:1 yield little degradation in image quality.
