HEIC file information

Full NameHigh Efficiency Image File Format
Mime Typeimage/heic

An HEIC file is a relatively new image format created to offer greater quality and compression ratios than older formats such as JPG. HEIC has found widespread adoption among image editing software thanks to the use of the format by Apple on their phones and tablets.

Apple's adoption of the format was critical. Photos taken on Apple devices, such as their smart phones, being saved to the HEIC format has created a lot of interest in the format and a desire from third parties to support it.


As HEIC was designed to be a direct replacement for the JPG format, it shares the same uses; for example, it is best used for storing photographic images rather than logos and other images that require a lossless compression format.

Palette and Transparency Support

HEIC, like comparable formats such as JPG, does not support palettes or transparency.

Compression Technology

HEIC uses advanced lossy compression technology that enables high-resolution photographic images to be saved using a fraction of the size of the equivalent uncompressed image file. The compression is so good that it is very difficult to tell the difference between the original image and the HEIC saved image.
