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.

PNG Image Format

PNG Converter

PNG is a common type of image file. The file extension PNG is short for ‘Portable Network Graphic’, and the format was created to offer improvements over the GIF format. Like JPG, PNG is a 2D ‘raster’ image format. However, unlike JPG, PNG files can have transparent or semi-transparent backgrounds around a design. This makes them perfect to use for company or brand logos or graphics that need to be placed in documents or over other images. They are also sometimes used for detailed graphs or diagrams online.

PNGs use lossless compression, which offers high-quality images with more colours. However, this often means PNG files are bigger than some other formats like JPG. The PNG format is open source, and you can open these files using almost all devices, image editors and viewers. Many smartphones now allow you to easily remove backgrounds and create PNGs of individual parts of photos.
