With iOS 11, Apple began using the HEIC image format. Because of its reduced file sizes, it is favoured over the incumbent JPG, and it has also made its way to the Mac. Some apps may have issues using HEIC. Here’s how to convert HEIC files to JPG quickly and easily.
If you use iOS, the odds are that you never really notice if an image is in the HEIC or JPG format because, for the most part, it makes little difference. When you start sharing photographs or storing them to your Mac for later use, you’ll probably want them in a more standard format.
It’s more likely to happen on a Mac, so wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a quick and easy way to convert any number of HEIC format photos to JPG? If you don’t mind getting your hands filthy with Automator, you can have a quick and easy way.
Let’s get this party started.
Creating a Quick Action
On your Mac, open Automator (it’s in your Applications folder, or you can use Spotlight to find it), and then select “New Document.”
Next, select “Quick Action” from the selection of templates, then “Choose.”
Type “copy finder” into the search box on the left side of the screen, then drag “Copy Finder Items” to the right side of the screen. After that, you may choose where you want the converted photographs to be saved.
Simply skip the “Copy Finder Items” step if you want to convert the HEIC image without making a copy. The original HEIC file will then be converted to JPEG in the same folder by Automator.
Warning: If you want to save your original HEIC files, use “Copy Finder Items” instead of skipping this step.
Type “change type” into the search box on the left side of the screen, then drag “Change Type of Images” to the right side of the screen. There’s also a drop-down menu here. Replace “JPEG” with “JPEG.”
In the menu bar, click File > Save and then enter a name for your quick action.
Finally, click “Save” to finish the procedure.
To convert HEIC photos to JPG, using the Quick Action.
To utilize your new Quick Action, right-click any HEIC file—or any picture file, for that matter—and select the Quick Action you generated earlier. The freshly converted JPG will be found in the folder you chose before.
You can also select a collection of images and convert them all at once.
