Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do with this tool?

You can convert HEIC images to JPG, PNG or GIF file format.

What is JPG file?

JPG shorts for Joint Photographic Experts Group. It is a widely used picture file format that makes advantage of lossy compression to reduce image file sizes without sacrificing image quality. For photographs and other images with a lot of detail and color fluctuation, JPG is frequently utilized.

When using the JPG compression process, the image is examined and certain elements and color information that are not essential to the image's overall appearance are removed. This enables reduced file sizes, which facilitates the storing and sharing of photographs.

What is PNG file?

PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics, and is specifically designed for use on the web. Unlike JPG and other compressed image formats, PNG uses lossless compression, which ensures that the image quality is maintained even when the file is compressed.

PNG files are suitable for usage in web graphics and designs with transparent backgrounds since they can contain translucent portions. They are therefore perfect for usage in digital media such as web design.

What is a GIF?

A sort of picture file format called GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) uses a lossless compression strategy to support animated images that can loop constantly. GIF files are restricted to a maximum 256 color palette and can hold up to 256 colors.

Short animations and other types of visual material that need tiny file sizes and support for animation frequently employ GIF pictures. The format is also frequently used to produce memes and other kinds of internet-wide viral material.

GIF files can store many frames and display them in a sequence to produce an animation effect, unlike other image formats like JPG and PNG, which are made for still images. Depending on how the file is produced, the animation may play an infinite number of times or loop continuously.
