Since the HEIC file format has only been announced recently and it does not work well on non-Apple devices, it needs to be first converted to another widely supported file format for it to be viewable on most devices. PNG is a format that is viewable on most devices and it preserves transparency as well. Therefore, many users prefer to convert their HEIC files to the PNG format.

In the following guide, you are going to learn how you can perform a HEIC to PNG conversion. That way all of your selected files will be converted to the widely popular PNG format. These converted files can then be viewed on any of your devices without the need of a special image viewer.

Let’s find out how to do it using HEIC to PNG converters:

While the above tool gets the conversion process done for you, it will not work if your files are not stored locally on your computer. What that means is it does not support fetching HEIC or any other files from your cloud storage or from web URLs. It only supports file uploads from your computer.

Step 2 When the website has fully loaded, click on the Select Files button to upload files from your computer. If you want to add files from a URL or a cloud storage provider, click on the arrow next to the button and select an appropriate option.
