HEIC (High Efficiency Image File Format) is an ISO/IEC 23008-12 standard that intends to become the successor of JPEG, claiming to store double amount of information while preserving the same size and even improving quality.

In fact, iOS 11 has dropped JPEG in favor of HEIC, so pictures captured with your iPhone running iOS 11 are saved as HEIC files. However, if you're operating a Windows desktop, you might find it difficult to visualize the HEIC images retrieved from your smartphone when using Microsoft's built-in tools. In this case, it's time to turn to a specialized software solution like Tansee HEIC Converter.

As the name of the application suggests, it's designed to turn HEIC photographs into common JPEG images, which can be subsequently opened with a vast range of viewers/editors on any device. Besides HEIC, the utility also has support for HEIF files.

Following a brief setup operation that doesn't give you any trouble, thanks to the fact that there are only common options involved in the installation phase, you come face to face with a user-friendly window having a well-structured layout, representing Tansee HEIC Converter's interface.

To get started, simply open a HEIC-formatted image using the built-in file browser, which can be viewed in full size in the main app window as well as rotated if necessary. To convert it to JPEG, it's only required to choose an output file name and saving directory. There's also a batch processing mode available, giving you the possibility to seamlessly convert a series of multiple HEIC or HEIF files at once.

Unfortunately, there are no kind of configuration settings available for the images. The tool worked smoothly on Windows 10 in our tests, without any compatibility issues. All aspects considered, Tansee HEIC Converter delivers a simple and straightforward solution for turning HEIC and HEIF photographs into JPEG files.
