Apple’s New Image Format HEIC

If you own an iPhone, iPad or another Apple iOS device, you have certainly noticed this already. Apple released a huge update from iOS 10 to iOS 11. This update came with some major changes and improvements. And it came with new file formats.

Since we at Online-Convert.com focus on file conversion, the latter is what we want to focus on in this article. iOS 11 introduced two new media formats: HEIC and HEVC. This week, let’s have a look at the new image format HEIC.

 

High Efficiency Image File Format – HEIC

As the headline suggests, the HEIC image format is also known as HEIF which stands for High Efficiency Image File. It was not developed by Apple, actually, but by MPEG. They are responsible for formats we use on a daily basis, like MP3 (audio) and MP4 (video). This suggests that HEIC might be on its way to overthrow the reign of old (but flawed) JPEG.

Thus, let us have a closer look at the new format.

 

HEIC Facts

With the update to iOS 11, HEIC became the standard image format for all devices running on this iOS version. They are specially optimized for iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.

The main idea behind this new format was to create a format that provides the good quality of JPG images but is smaller in file size. In fact, it seems that an HEIC image is roughly half the size of a JPEG image. There are even more advantages over images with a .jpg extension though. For example, HEIC files support transparency, just like PNG or GIF images. It can store multiple images at once (which is interesting for Live Images, for example). Furthermore, it can even store minor editing, like cropping or rotating, to undo them again.

What’s practical is that, even though the HEIC format is still quite new, Apple already got rid of a few compatibility issues. When sharing an HEIC image on social media, it is automatically converted and uploaded as a JPEG. That way, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and such should not have any problem with your new image files. Furthermore, iOS 11 offers the possibility to send these images to a Mac or PC and immediately convert them to JPEG as well.

 

Problems With The New Format

Unfortunately, every change also brings a few problems. This is no exception. As mentioned above, there might very well be compatibility issues, that Apple has not fixed under the hood. While cloud services like Dropbox, GoogleDrive and by now also Microsoft OneDrive automatically save HEIC files as JPEG, other third-party apps and programs might not recognize this new image format. Image viewers for mobile phones or native programs on Microsoft Windows computer can thus not use these files. Even Adobe Photoshop is, by the time this article was written, not able to process HEIC files.

 

How To Work With HEIC

There are two ways to still be able to work with HEIC files, however. One is to disable saving images in this format on your iOS 11 device. Please note that this will, of course, get rid of their neat effect of being less space hogging. You can do so by going to Settings > Camera > Formats. Images will then be saved in the JPEG format again.

Another way would be to convert HEIC files into JPG using a file converter. The JPG Converter of Online-Convert.com can already handle Heic files and converts them to JPG. HEIC files containing several images will be converted into an archive containing a JPG for every layer or image inside the HEIC. Likewise, when converting to animated GIF or Video (e.g. MP4), any animation of a Live Image will be retained.

Why You Should Consider Converting From JPG To SVG

There are many different image formats on the world wide web and even more when you regularly download, take and edit pictures. If you work with image files, either professionally or on a private basis, you surely came across the so-called SVG image format. Even if you haven’t actively worked with it yet, there are many advantages of this format.

Thus, in today’s article, we will have a look at why it might be useful for you to convert your already existing JPG and PNG images into the SVG format.

 

What you need:

  • A JPG or PNG image
  • A working internet connection (for phone or desktop computer)
  • An online SVG converter

 

Why Convert To SVG?

In order to understand the benefits you have from converting your “normal” images to SVG, you have to understand what an SVG is. Thus, before we jump into the reasons for a conversion, lets have a look what SVG stands for and what makes it different from image formats like JPG, PNG, GIF and others.

 

What Is SVG?

SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. The name alone gives away a lot about this image format. SVG is a so-called vector image format. This contrasts it with formats that belong in the category of so-called raster image formats such as JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, WebP, as well as camera raw image formats like NEF, CR2 or ARW.

So, what makes a vector graphic so different from a rater image? As the SVG name already suggests, these images are scalable. This means that, no mater the original size of the image, you can scale it not only smaller, but also bigger without any loss of quality. A JPG image, however, can not be scaled bigger without the image getting a way worse quality, aka. becoming “pixelated”.

Reasons To Convert To SVG

Now that you know what an SVG image is, lets have a look at what you can use them for – and why you should consider converting your raster images to SVG.

  1. Logos
    Logos are used for many things; websites, business cards, merchandise, posters, roll ups, banners, magazines, and so on and so forth. Since all these publications and displays vary in size, sometimes extremely, it’s important to have the logo saved in a way that you can make it bigger and smaller without it becoming pixalated.
  2. Other Web Graphics
    When it comes to graphics for the internet, it’s important that they look good on screens with a big screen resolution as well as on the small screen of a mobile phone. For this, a format that is scalable without loss of quality is essential. Thus, many web graphics are now not only saved but also displayed as SVG graphics.
  3. Image Editing
    The scaling is also a reason for why SVG is a perfect format for further image editing and manipulation. In an SVG, all elements are stored separately. Thus, they can be manipulated individually with ease. Changing the color of certain parts or adding a background color is thus an easy task when you have an SVG.

 

But what if you don’t have an SVG image and a printer or graphic designer needs one. Or if you need one for further editing and work yourself? Then, you can take the image you need and convert it to SVG!

There are a few things you have to be aware of, when converting from raster to vector image:

  • Converting from JPG to SVG will not create a “true” vector graphic.
  • Colors are not transported when converting from raster to vector image.
  • Details are getting lost when converting from JPG to SVG, just converting the basic shapes.

 

To understand these points better, have a look at the following comparison:

Original JPG Converted SVG
(saved as JPG for better display)

 

What To Use The SVG For?

Many of our users value the JPG to SVG conversion for different purposes. They might not retain color, but in order to further work with the SVG, this conversion is very versatile.

Here are a few ways in which our users have further used the SVG file:

  • Designs for shirts
  • Create cookie cutters with a 3D printer
  • Further edit a tattoo template
  • and much more

How To Move Apps and Files From Mac To Mac

How To Move Apps and Files From Mac To MacThere will come a time when you will want to upgrade your Mac. Whenever that happens, it is a great feeling. However, what about all the files and apps you have on your old Mac? What happens to them? This guide on how to move apps and files from Mac to Mac can help. It will take some clicks and tweaking, but it can all be done in no time.

While there is always the option of using an external hard drive, this is a much easier way. Mac’s come with an integrated migration assistant. The Migration Assistant, lets you take a hold of your old applications, files and documents, and move them to your new Mac. You can even migrate your system settings as well. Migrating your apps and files from one Mac to another using the migration assistant is the best thing. In fact, when you get a new Mac and turn it on, it will offer to run the Migration Assistant. But, most people don’t bother doing that right away. The majority typically like to play around with their new toy before doing so. Especially when the transfer can take a long time to complete. Since you can always use the Migration Assistant whenever you want, it doesn’t really matter when you do it anyway.

Keep in mind that it does take a while to complete though. Still, it will be well worth it once you are done. We suggest that you leave it overnight so that when you awake, the entire process will be over. And you will have your new Mac, just like your older Mac
Below are the step by step process to transferring files and apps from one Mac to another.

2)1) Begin The Migration Assistant Process

The first thing you want to do is make sure that your Mac is plugged and powered. That’s because the entire process will take a long time. The last thing you want is for your battery to die on you before you are done. Once you have it plugged, go to the Finder. Next, you go over to the Applications and then Utilities. This will bring you to the Migration Assistant.

After you click on Continue, the user account you are presently using will be logged out. In a few, you will be able to see the process begin in a window. Once the window appears, choose the ‘From a Mac, Time Machine, or Startup Disk,’ option. Select Continue and you can then start to get the old Mac ready to go as well.

2) Setting Up The Older Mac For Transfer

The second step is to begin setting up your older Mac for the entire migration process. Keep in mind that if you have a backup to restore from using a Time Machine, then there is no need to use your older Mac. All you have to do is simply plug the drive in. Or you can connect it to the network. Once you do that, you can then move on to the next step.

For those that DO NOT have a Time Machine backup setup to restore their old Mac from, there are two options. The same for those who rather restore their Mac using another method.

Option 1.

Using your network, you can migrate your data directly from one Mac to another. Although this method is very slow, it is the easiest way to do so.

Option 2. Using either a Thunderbolt, Ethernet or Firewire cable, you can connect both of your Macs directly to each other. Although this is the fastest way to do so, you must have the cables ready; no matter which ones you choose.

In addition, for those with an older Mac, they may have to start their old Mac in the ‘Target Disk Mode’ option. However, this is only true for those who use Thunderbolt cables. And Macs running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or earlier versions. This is according to Apple.

Once you have decided to use the Migration Assistant, the next step is making sure your old Mac is plugged into an outlet with the power supply. Again, this will ensure that the process is not interrupted due to the battery dying out.

The next step is to begin the Migration Utility tool on your older Mac. You find it by going to Applications, then Utilities. After the program has launched, you click on Continue. That will log you out of your older Mac’s current account.

From here, you want to choose “to another Mac’ option. Next, you hit the Continue button once again. Once this is done, you will need to head back to the new Mac.

3) Complete The Migration Process

As you head back to your new Mac, there should be a list of all of the devices you will be able to restore from. Choose where you want to transfer from, and then click on Continue. There will be a number which will pop up. You will need to confirm that both numbers are the same. Once you confirm the numbers, click on Continue again.

This step is important and necessary. That’s because you want to make sure that both Macs are connected to the same network. And that they are using the same Migration Assistant simultaneously. This is a safeguard against you restoring data from somewhere else by mistake.

After you have completed the numbers verification process, select which user accounts you want to keep. Also, you can choose if you want to port over all of your apps. Lastly, your system settings from your old Mac can be kept, as well as any other files. Whatever you DO NOT want to migrate, make sure you uncheck. To begin the migration process, select the Continue button.

The amount of time this migration process may take, will largely depend on the files you are moving. For those with only a few files, it may take a few hours. However, if you have a huge amount of files, the best suggestion is to leave it overnight.

4) Review Your Files and Applications

After the migration process has been completed, you will want to check on your files and applications. You can do so by logging on to your new and old Macs. All of your apps and documents should be exactly where you left them before the transfer process. Even your dock icons will be in the same place and identical.

The last step is to begin enjoying your new Mac, while still using your older files, applications and settings.

Why GIF Images Are So Popular

Why GIF Images Are So PopularIf pictures are worth a thousand words, then an animated GIF image is worth a million. That may help to explain why GIF images are so popular. Animated GIF images are everywhere you look on the web. Millions upon millions of websites, social media sites and image pages, contain every type of GIF image you can think of. But what exactly is it that has made them so popular these days? Why are so many people creating their own GIFS and uploading them online? Especially on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram?

 

What GIFS Are All About

An animated GIF image (Graphics Interchange Format) is what you call a file which contains a graphic bitmap image that has movements. The bitmap format of GIF images was developed by Steve Wilhite who was a United States software writer. He first discovered the GIF images back in June 15, 1987. GIFS are typically found on websites and come in banners, icons and pictures. In addition, GIFS loop infinitely which give off the impression that the file has not finished playing out.

The average length of a GIF Image is between 10 to 15 seconds max. They can also be made from still images that show a few sequences and stop afterwards. GIFS are not the same as JPEG image formats because they do not degrade the quality of the images. They use lossless compression and include a maximum of 256 colors. Even though animated GIFS only contain 256 colors, people still use them widely. However, they are not the ideal format for anyone who wants to store their digital photos.

 

Why GIFS Images Became So Popular

Before animated GIF images were available, people had to resort to viewing still pictures. The only other way to see animation or movement in images was via videos. However, videos take a long time to upload and are often too huge in size to share. At the same time, a person must watch the entire video or skip to the part he or she is looking for to see it. Apart from that, videos take long to buffer and pose a problem for those who have limited data or slow speed internet connections. GIFS began to gain popularity when epic fail videos started popping up all over the web.

Many users took the parts of people doing crazy, embarrassing or unusual things, and turned them into 10 to 15 seconds mini movie clips. Before long, funny, crazy or wild animated GIF images were all over the internet. Since they took such little space, it made sharing, storing or saving them a cinch. In fact, their ability of a GIF image to be shared so easily, has helped to turn people into internet sensations. There are millions of GIFS images found on the web which are very popular and have turned unknown people, into online celebrities. GIFS images also help to spread clips of celebrities, athletes and famous people taken from movies, TV shows or games.

 

Making GIFS or Changing Formats

Another reason why animated GIF images have become so popular is because they are now very easy to make. Years ago, people had to use sophisticated software or programs. Others had to use photo editing tools such as Photoshop to create and edit them. These days, there are many websites which let you create an animated GIF image quickly and easily.

Why Free Online Conversion Is So Important

Free Online File Conversion Made EasyBillions upon billions of files are shared throughout the world via the web everyday. Not too long ago though, many of the files shared with others were problematic. They were either troublesome for the recipient or the sender. In most cases, for both. The reason for some of these problems were due to the types of files that were being sent or shared. Some files were either too big, or in the wrong format. This is why in today’s world, free online conversion is so important.

 

For years, people had to contend with music, image or video files that were too big and took up too much space. These types of files also took a long time to download or upload as well. Worse of all, a lot of the files were in formats that some systems of devices did not recognize. That would make the files obsolete since they could not be viewed or used at all.

Upload Animated GIFs To Instagram

Of course, Instagram is mainly used to share images and videos of yourself, of your daily life. However, it is also used to share images you found on the internet for example. So far, there had been no real way to share animated GIFs with someone since Instagram only posts a static image of the animation.

The tutorial below will show you a little trick on how you can still post your favorite animated GIF on Instagram!

 

1. Get The Link Of Your GIF

We bet that you have your own sources for amazing, funny or even calming animated GIFs. No matter if you found it on tumblr, google, 9gag or giphy – what you need is the link to the GIF image. On giphy.com, for example, you can find the link underneath the GIF under the “Advanced” tab.

Copy the link to the clipboard.

2. Go To Online-Convert.com

3. Convert Your GIF To Video

You can ignore all the optional settings and click on “Convert file”.

How To Convert NEF Files To JPG, PNG, PDF and More For Free

How To Convert NEF Files To JPG, PNG, PDF and More For Free
Image Credit by = http://bit.ly/2g7Qg4B

Chances are that you may have a NEF file on your computer or camera that you need converted to another format type. All NEF files are found specifically on Nikon cameras. Short for Nikon Electronic Format, the NEF file extension derives from a raw image file from Nikon. The problem for most people is that NEF files are often not compatible on other computers, laptops, cell phones or devices. In addition, you may need to convert the file to a more widely used format such as PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP or many others.

This article covers the steps on how to convert NEF files to JPG, PNG, PDF and more for free. Online Convert has many free tools which allow you to do so quickly, easily and totally free of charge. Best of all, you do not need to download any kind of program, software or even provide your email to do so.

 

All About NEF Files

NEF files are just like countless of other RAW image files. These files are able to retain everything that is captured by a Nikon camera. This is all done before the metadata and lens camera model processing has happened. The digital photos taken by anyone with a Nikon camera need to be converted before sharing them with others. Even more so, when those you are sharing them with do not have the same camera as you.

Since NEF are RAW files, they are not ready to be used right away. They need to be converted before they are ready for printing, processing or editing with image editors. NEF files are often called or referred to as digital negatives.

 

Why So Many Different Types of File Formats?

Just like many other companies, Nikon has its own file extension for their cameras. Most printing machine, camera manufacturers and others businesses create their own file extensions for their particular brand or model. They do this in order to guarantee sole rights to their products via file types. That is why there are so many different kinds and versions of formats today. From SVG, WBMP, JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, EPS, HDR/EXR, TGA, WebP and Tiff, the list goes on and on.

Having all of these different types of file formats causes a lot of problems for users trying to share or use them. That’s because the majority of them are only able to work or be used by each specific brand or model they are created by and for. This can cause a huge headache for people who have one kind of printer, camera or device than the other person they want to share it with. Or if they simply want to use it on another device of their own from a different company or brand. So what can a person do then? Fortunately, Online Convert has all the tools you need to change the file formats to whatever type you need.

 

How To Convert NEF Files Easily

For anyone with a Nikon camera or NEF files, the biggest problem they have is conversion. They all want to know how they can convert NEF files quick and easy without too much hassle. And of course they also want to know how to do so without having to spend money or download any programs or software. You can convert your NEF files in a snap using our free Online Conversion Tool here.

The online image converter lets you convert any image you may have to over 12 different types of formats. All it takes is a few seconds of uploading your files to the site. If you choose, you can also apply effects or select other optional settings. Once you have selected exactly into what format and how you want the file converted, you hit the convert file button. Within a few seconds – this all depends on the file size and your internet speed of course – the file will be ready for you to use.

Choices Are Great – So Is Online Convert!

Having different cameras, printers, smartphones or any devices to choose from is great. That gives us all kinds of choices when we want to purchase them.

File Conversion Problems

 

One of the challenges which many users face is being able to use certain kind of files. Depending on your computer or electronic device, the format of an audio, video or image file changes. There are certain formats which work very well with one kind of operating system. However, other formats don’t work as well or at all. This can be applied to video formats or images editing programs or software you may have. In a day and age where millions spend long periods of time on social media, the consequences are huge. If you want to send a file to a friend or share it with someone, you have to consider a few things first. For one, just because it opens up on your system, phone or device, it doesn’t mean it will work on theirs. Second, most social media sites have a file size limit on what you can send.
