How to Convert HEIC Images to JPG with Star Watermark

What is Heic File

HEIC (High Efficiency Image Format) is a file format used for storing images. It is a container format for images that employs advanced compression algorithms to achieve high image quality while keeping the file size relatively small. HEIC was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) as part of the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard.

HEIC files use the HEVC (H.265) codec for image compression, which provides better compression efficiency compared to older formats like JPEG. This allows HEIC files to store high-quality images with reduced file sizes, making them ideal for saving and sharing photos on devices with limited storage capacity or slower internet connections.

HEIC files can store various types of image data, including multiple images, transparency information, and metadata such as EXIF data. They support features like lossless and lossy compression, alpha channels, and 16-bit color depth.

HEIC is the default image format used by Apple on iOS devices since iOS 11 and macOS devices since macOS High Sierra. However, it may not be widely supported on all platforms and applications, particularly older devices and software versions. Many modern devices and software have added support for HEIC, but compatibility can vary, and converting HEIC files to more widely supported formats like JPEG is sometimes necessary for broader compatibility.

If you own an iPhone, you may be familiar with the HEIC/HEIF image format. HEIC is the default image format for iOS devices, offering several advantages such as smaller file sizes and better image quality. However, compatibility can be an issue when sharing or using HEIC images on non-iOS platforms. To overcome this, converting HEIC images to more widely supported formats like JPEG or PNG becomes necessary.

Step 2: Customize Watermark (Optional)

In the left sidebar of the software interface, double-click on the desired watermark template to open the "Edit Watermark Template" window. In this window, you have the option to add text or image watermarks. However, if you only intend to convert the HEIC images without adding any watermarks, you can simply leave the text watermark field blank to hide the watermark.
