Description A HEIC format is to images what M4A is to music. It is a compressed image format – even smaller in size than say a JPG – but one who’s quality is actually greater. They were developed by the Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG) and then adopted by Apple who were keen to allow their users to store more information, specifically pictures in this case, on their devices.

Technical Details MPEG had wanted to develop a file format that was more efficient than a JPG and so built the HEIC format. The way that it is designed means that almost double the information can be stored on a HEIC file compared to a JPG but the file is actually smaller in size than a JPG. It even supports 16-bit deep colour images which was particularly attractive to Apple as it meant the quality of picture is that much sharper.

Description The JPG file is also sometimes referred to as a JPEG and when talking in conversation it is often referred to as a “Jay....Peg”. It has been around now for decades and it’s popularity has endured. It is a compressed image format that still provided excellent picture quality but at a fraction of the size of say a BMP format. For many cameras it is the default file type and many sites on the Web use JPG’s because they aid the page load speed given they’re small in size. A JPG is a universal format that is able to be opened by almost any device, OS or picture application.

Technical Details A JPG uses something called lossy compression which is to say that the compression comes at a cost, namely the quality of the picture is less in a JPG compared with a RAW file. Having said that, JPG’s are popular because the overall quality degradation of the image to the human eye is barely noticeable. What makes the HEIC format more appealing than a JPG is that it’s able to contain more data but for less storage meaning the picture is better but the file size is smaller. As it has been around for so long the JPG is widely supported and used and it is hard to see it disappearing any time soon.
