Working with HEIC Files

About

HEIC is a file extension commonly used by iOS devices starting with iOS 11.  Windows computer users require the installation of two applications for converting and viewing HEIC files: iMazing HEIC Converter for converting HEIC files to .png or .jpeg formats and HEIC Image Viewer / Converter for viewing HEIC files. Converted files can then be uploaded to systems such as Runway.
