How to convert HEIC image files into PDF documents.

Share your best photos quickly and easily. Learn how converting HEIC images into PDF files lets everyone open them.

You snap a photo on your new iPhone and notice the phone saved the picture as a HEIC file. This image format is great for photography, but few apps and devices support it.

Converting your HEIC images into PDF files can solve this problem. Read on to find out how to convert HEIC files into PDF documents in three easy steps.

What is a HEIC file?

The High Efficiency Image Container (HEIC) is a recent image file format. Apple developed it in 2017 and all iPhones and Mac computers have supported it since.

HEIC is a useful picture format for hobbyists or professional photographers since it preserves high image quality while being only half the size of a traditional JPEG image. But there’s a downside — few devices and apps outside of Apple products can open HEIC images, making sharing them difficult. Fortunately, there’s an easy solution to this problem.

Convert HEIC images into PDF files.

You can convert your HEIC images into PDF files with an online PDF converter, like Adobe Acrobat online services. PDFs work on any device — from computers to smartphones. Follow these steps to convert your pictures into PDF:

  1. Navigate to the Acrobat online services PDF converter with your web browser.
  2. Click Select A File or drag your image file into the converter.
  3. Download your new PDF file after the converter is done.

If you use a converter that doesn’t directly support HEIC files, you can first save the images as JPEGs. You could then share them immediately, but it’s still a good idea to convert them into a PDF. You can include multiple images in one PDF file and compress the document to a small file size without affecting image quality.
