|#||Output File||Source File||Action|
How to convert PNG to HEIC:
1. Click "Choose Files" button to select multiple files on your computer or click the dropdown button to choose online file from URL, Google Drive or Dropbox. Image file size can be up to 200M. You can use file analyzer to get source image's detailed information such as image size, resolution, quality and transparent color.
2. Set target image format, image quality and image size. You can use the original image size or select "Change width and height" option and enter a custom image size. The format is [width]x[height], for example: 1920x1080. Image quality option only works on a few image formats such as JPG, WEBP or AVIF. The value ranges from 1 (lowest image quality and highest compression) to 100 (best quality but least effective compression). If this value is blank, the converter will use the estimated quality of your input image if it can be determined, otherwise 92. The target image format can be JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, HEIC, BMP, PS, PSD, WEBP, TGA, DDS, EXR, J2K, PNM, SVG, etc.
3. Click "Convert Now!" button to start batch conversion. It will automatically retry another server if one failed, please be patient while converting. The output files will be listed in the "Conversion Results" section. Click icon to show file QR code or save file to online storage services such as Google Drive or Dropbox.
PNG vs HEIC:
|Full name||Portable Network Graphics||High Efficiency Image File Format|
|Developed by||PNG Development Group||Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG)|
|Type of format||Lossless bitmap image format||Image Container Format|
|Introduction||Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression. PNG was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet. PNG itself does not support animation at all. MNG is an extension to PNG that does; it was designed by members of the PNG Group.||As HEIC is a container format, it can contain still images and image sequences (where a file contains more than one single image) that are coded in different formats. Currently, these include HEVC and H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (and JPEG for thumbnail/secondary images), though other coding formats may be added in the future. The main filename extension is .heic (for HEVC codec).|
|Technical details||PNG supports palette-based images (with palettes of 24-bit RGB or 32-bit RGBA colors), grayscale images (with or without alpha channel), and full-color non-palette-based RGB[A] images (with or without alpha channel). PNG was designed for transferring images on the Internet, not for professional-quality print graphics, and therefore does not support non-RGB color spaces such as CMYK.||In Apple's implementation, for single images they have chosen the latter .heic filename extension (.heics for image sequence files) as the only one they will produce for photos, which indicates clearly that it went through HEVC encoding.|
