πŸ“Œ HEIC data container belongs to the composite file category which includes one or more images stored in the High Efficiency Image Format (HEIF), a tech specification generally exploited for opening and storing photos on iOS devices and gadgets. It includes a sequence of images or an individual graphical object mostly created by an iPad or iPhone’s integrated camera tool, in addition to metadata which accurately describes each image. .HEIC file entries are frequently stored and opened up with the .HEIC extension type, but can also be processed and maintained with the exceptional .HEIF definition. HEIF technology, also widely shared as H.265 specification, refers to a digital photo storage standard which handles images in smaller-sized files and at a higher quality than the .JPEG branch.

How to open an .HEIC file?

πŸ“Œ You can open and review the visual contents of the .HEIC images with multiple plain graphical editors, such as Gimp, XnViewMP, Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and others. Besides, the .HEIC format is perfectly recognizable by more complex and sophisticated toolkits for visual adjustments and refinements (for instance, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Premiere Rush, etc.). The .HEIC file structure can be clearly and transparently converted to particular alternate definitions, such as .JPG, .PNG, .TIFF, .PDF and more actual extension branches and categories. The .HEIC file layout and constitution can also be freely adjusted and modified on any desktop or mobile systems without any hindrance and obstructions.
