Heic Picture Format to JPEG

Heic Picture Format to JPEG

Use tifig software

Heic is a new picture format that created in iphone camera or latest android handphone. It is said that i has a high resolution format with small size.

But my operating system doesn’t recognize it. Maybe it is not the latest version of ubuntu. But there is a small program that can convert it right away to jpeg.

Of course there is already an online converter that easy to use but I rather use it in my computer offline.

Download the tifig in here.

Follow the instruction for installing in Linux OS.

  1. Download the current version of Tifig for Linux: Alpha Release 0.8.0 (64-Bit)
    Alternatively, on Arch Linux you can also install the AUR package for Tifig.
  2. Install Java 8 (Instructions for Linux)
  3. Install Swift 4.0
  4. Make sure that the bin subfolder is in your $PATH environment variable. This can be done by adding something like the following line to ~/.profile:export PATH=~/Downloads/swift-4.0.3-RELEASE-ubuntu16.04/usr/bin:$PATH

Please note that Tifig requires at least Swift 4.0.

Install swift with this

#sudo apt install python3-swiftclient

For the record, I already use python3 in my OS.
