How to Convert HEIC to JPG with Online Website or Desktop Program

Posted by on .

HEIC is a great image format for iOS 11 devices because it saves a lot of space compared to PNG or JEPG. That's something iPhone users are always complaining about because memory is not expandable on iPhone in normal way. But the problem with HEIC is that it's not very user friendly when it comes to other devices, such as WIndows PCs or Android smartphones and tablets. There is no default program that can open or view it currently.

Actually, there are several online services as well as offline utilities that can do the job, but only a few that can maintain the quality of the images during the conversion process. The key to this is the conversion engine underlying the software's interface. That's what really matters. We've reviewed lots of free and premium options since HEIC was introduced alongside iOS 11 last year, but nothing beats TunesBro HEIC Converter, as you'll see.

Method 1: How to Convert HEIC to PNG Online (AConvert)

This first method is a free online tool that's convenient to use. You simply choose the file you want to convert, specific an output format and image size, and hit "Convert Now". It's done in a jiffy and the quality is fairly lossless.

The only problem is that if you have a large number of images to convert, then it's going to take you a long time to do it. There's no drag and drop option, either, which means for every image file you will need to manually select the file from its folder location.

The interface is highly intuitive and has been lauded by many professional reviewers. The pleasant green theme of the software's UI keeps your eyes relaxed even if you're converting hundreds of images into PNG or JPG formats.

Step 2Select Conversation Method

You'll see the single and batch conversion mode options on the interface. Choose the appropriate one and you'll be taken to another page where you'll be selecting the images for conversion. At this point, you'll also need to define other parameters, such as the output format (in this case, .webp), output quality, output destination and whether or not you want to retain Exif data.

There are a couple of things you need to know about HEIC converters in general. First of all, not all of them are reliable. Even some of the so-called premium ones can degrade the quality of your image. You might not be able to spot the difference with the naked eye, but if you're using the imagery for other purposes, it may look grainy or the color aspects might be different from the original. After all, you wouldn't want that to happen if you're a professional visual designer or need the images for a client presentation, right?

If the answer is "no" to any of these questions, you might be better off looking elsewhere. At TunesBro, we only hire the best developers, customer service agents and other staff. We provide them with the most premium tools to do their job so our software can take care of you. Feel free to contact us for any questions prior to purchasing a license. We're always listening.
