Google Photos supports the HEIC format, but you can only view HEIC images if you originally downloaded them from an iOS device. So, the only way to work with HEIC images (if you receive a lot somewhere) on an Android device is to convert them to JPG format.
Fortunately, there are a handful of applications and online services that you can use to easily convert HEIC images to JPG on Android. Let's take a look at some of the best on the market.
Warning: Avoid converting sensitive images with the help of online conversion services because there is no guarantee where they might end up.
1. Luma HEIC converter to JPG
Luma is one of the best third-party conversion utilities from HEIC to JPG that you can download from the Google Play Store. It is small, do not bombard you with advertising all the time and converts images without sweating.
After installing Luma, open it. You will be greeted with a sparse screen with a few options downstairs – from HEIC to TO HEIC. Make sure to select the old one because all we are looking for is to convert HEIC images to JPG format.
Then press the icon in the form of "+". You will then be presented with two options. The Open Single Image option allows you to select images individually to convert them. On the other hand, the Open Pictures folder option allows you to choose any folder containing multiple HEIC images to convert.
If you select the Open Single Image option, select the image that you want to convert from the internal storage of your Android device. Then, tap Save as JPG. Luma will convert the selected image in seconds. Remember to specify a folder for the application to save your images after the conversion process.
If you select the Open Image Folder option, choose any folder containing HEIC files, choose the images you want to convert, and then press Convert. Nothing complicated.
2. Total Media Converter
Total Media Converter is another application that allows you to easily convert HEIC images to JPG. You can also choose to convert images into a variety of other formats, such as PNG, making it a better fit if you prefer more versatility.
Install the application, run it, specify the input and output formats and you can easily queue the images to convert. Once you're done, just tap the conversion icon, and you're ready to go.
Total Media Converter also saves converted images automatically, which is very nice. You can also dive into the Settings panel of the application to change the default storage location of your converted JPG files at any time.
If you do not want to worry about downloading and installing a third-party application, consider using CloudConvert. It is a phenomenal web application that you can easily use to convert HEIC files to JPG without any problem.
However, you are limited to 25 minutes of conversion per day unless you upgrade to a paid package, but this should not be a problem for most of you.
After viewing the HEIC Convert Page to JPG & #39; on CloudConvert, tap Select files, then add your HEIC files using the file switcher displayed on the screen.
Once you have added the HEIC images, tap Start Conversion. CloudConvert will begin the download and conversion process. This may take some time depending on the number of images waiting for conversion.
Once the conversion process is complete, you can download each converted image individually, or you can choose to download everything as a ZIP archive (faster).
HEICtoJPG is another online conversion tool that allows you to easily convert HEIC images to JPG format. It converts images into lots of 50 photos and has no noticeable limitation compared to CloudConvert.
The conversion tool displays in desktop mode on Android web browsers. So use the Pinch gesture to zoom in if you can not locate certain web elements.
After visiting HEICtoJPG, simply download your images. Once finished, you can download them in JPG format.
Converted and ready
As you have seen, converting HEIC to JPG on Android is quite simple. Use Luma or Total Media Converter if you want to convert HEIC images regularly, or CloudConvert or HEICtoJPG for point instances. Whatever the case may be, the HEIC format has many advantages over the JPG format. Therefore, the sooner it is integrated, the better.
Then: Now that you've converted your images, spice them up with these phenomenal photo editing apps for Android.
