A seemingly very simple set-up, but which gives the headache of many iPhone users.
With iOS 11, Apple has brought more news, including the new format for photo files. HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) uses a new technology compression for image files, replacing the classic . JPG. The big advantage of HEIF is that it is occupies less space than a .JPG file without losing anything image quality.
This format is only recommended if you intend to keep the pictures on iPhone, iPad or if you are the owner of a Poppy / MacBook cu High Sierra to export. If you have Windows PC and want to export the photos on iPhone pe PC / laptop, it is best to have the photos in the .JPG compatible format.
In this sense, you can change the format in which the pictures are taken with the "Camera" application of the iPhone. Change the format from .HEIC to .JPG in the "Camera" settings of iPhone / iOS.
How to change the format of .HEIC (HEIF) photos in .JPG on iPhone
- Open "Settings" and go to "Camera".
- In the "Camera" we open the "Formats" menu
- Select "Most Compatible"
After selecting "Most Compatible", Pictures taken with the iPhone's Camera application will be automatically saved in .JPG format. Format that can be opened and edited on Windows.
Currently, even if you use macOS High Sierra, a picture taken and exported in .HEIC format can only be edited with Photos or Preview. Both developed by Apple and present by default on Mac.
In the near future, Adobe plans to provide editing support Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator si InDesign.
