HEIC (High Efficiency Image Coding) is an image file format developed by MPEG (Moving Pictures Experts Group) for storing multiple and individual images. Unlike JPEG, HEIC uses both lossless and lossy compression to deliver a small file size with high-quality photos. Today, Apple devices, later than iOS 11, are using HEIC as their native image format.
JPG, sometimes called JPEG, is a standard image format developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPG uses a high degree of lossy compression to give it a small file size while sacrificing the overall image quality. It can achieve up to an impressive 10:1 compression algorithm. Today, it’s the most widely used image format, thanks to its seamless compatibility with the World Wide Web and most image viewing and editing apps.
