Apple began using the HEIC image format with iOS 11. It is preferred to the historical JPG operator because of the small size of its files. It has also been transferred to Mac. HEIC can cause problems for some applications. Here's how to easily convert HEIC files to JPG.
If you live your life on iOS, there is a good chance that you will never really know when an image is in HEIC or JPG format, because in most cases it does not matter. . However, when you start sharing images or saving them to your Mac for later use, you can use them in a more common format. This is what happens most often on a Mac. Would not it be great to find a quick and easy way to convert an unlimited number of images to HEIC format in JPG format? If you do not mind getting your hands dirty with Automator, you'll have a quick and easy way.
Setting up fast action
Launch Automator on your Mac (it's in your Applications folder or you can use Spotlight to find it), then click "New Document."
Then, in the list of templates, click "Quick Action" and then "Choose."
On the left side of the screen, type "copy finder" in the search field, and then drag "Copy Finder Items" on the right side of the screen. Here, you can then select the folder in which you want to save the converted images.
