For those of you out there who are not into the Apple ecosystem, HEIC is a new file format that Apple uses on its devices for compressed images. All the photos were taken on an iOS device running iOS 11 or later are saved in the HEIC format to save memory space while retaining the image quality. Since HEIC is usually only used on Apple devices, the format does not open natively on other machines.

There are times when you may want your HEIC files in the PDF format so that your files can be viewed on any of your devices. Fortunately, there are a few converters on the web that let you perform a HEIC to PDF conversion for free. The following post covers three of those converters to help you convert your HEIC files to the PDF format. Let’s get started:

Part 1: How to Convert HEIC to PDF with Cloudconvert

Cloudconvert Tool is one of the tools on the web that allows you to convert your HEIC files to the widely popular and operating system independent PDF format.

Basically, that means the tool will let you convert your HEIC to PDF regardless of where your HEIC files are saved. The following is how you go about performing the conversion process using the aforesaid tool.
