HEIC, also known as High-Efficiency Image Format, is a new image file format developed by Apple that has been introduced with the release of iOS 11. This format saves images in a smaller size without compromising the quality, which is great for saving storage on devices. However, it is not natively supported on Windows 7, making it difficult for users to view or edit these images.
In this blog post, we will walk you through the process of converting HEIC images to JPG format on a Windows 7 computer. This will allow you to easily view, share, and edit your images without any compatibility issues.
