The HEIC format is an analog of the .heif (High-Efficiency Image Format, that is, “high-performance image format). Development of MPEG, which will soon displace the rapidly aging JPG. As soon as users understand how to open the .heic file, the time of the jeep will pass. Compared to the latter, the “highly efficient” format characterizes a number of advantages, for example, images “weigh” 50% less with similar quality and in one .heic file, you can include 2 or more pictures. The only problem is compatibility. Until now, even many image editors do not support the format. However, workarounds exist. Let's talk about how to open a .heic file on a computer with a Windows operating system and give ways to read the format on smartphones and tablets running Android.
JPG is one of the most recognizable, popular, and comprehensible bitmap image formats.This format appeared as a result of the work of the group of photo experts “Joint Photographic Experts Group”. The main task of this group of developers was to develop an optimal image compression algorithm. Today, this problem has been solved successfully. It is used .jpg most often for processing and storing full-color images with realistic images, where brightness and color transitions are inherently present. Also .jpg format is used for storing and transmitting graphic digital content (photos, scan copies, digitized pictures). It is most convenient for placing and transmitting compressed images over the network, because it takes up little space compared to other formats.
