Question about HEIC photos

Forum
Other Apple Chat

Can't open HEIC photos on my Windows laptop. Any image viewer for HEIC photos? If I shared the photos on other devices, should I convert them to JPG?

Hi.
From what I heard, .heif is for apple. That being said, I'd convert to .jpg if you share to other devices that don't support .hief.
If you want to turn this off altogether, you can toggle the ietting to standard compatible. BARE IN MIND THIS IS FROM RESEARCH i did on the net.

Thanks for the tip. Already use compatible format in Settings. Now, I need to handle the existing photos. Any recommendation for image viewer for converter?
