Information about HEIC and PNG file formats

Name HEIC PNG
Full name HEIC, High Efficiency Image Format PNG - Portable Network Graphics
File extension .heic .png
MIME type image/png
Developed by Moving Pictures Experts Group PNG Development Group
Type of format Raster image lossless bitmap image format
Description HEIC is the new standard image format introduced by Apple with its 2017 update from iOS 10 to iOS 11. It is also known under the acronym of HEIF which stands for High Efficiency Image Format. The HEIC format was developed by MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) which are otherwise known for video and audio formats such as MP3 or MP4. Being the new default or standard image format for iOS 11 devices, HEIC was designed to replace the JPG format. It's smaller in size with comparable quality while also supporting transparency. Furthermore, HEIC files can contain several images which fits Apple's "Live Photo" functionality. Furthermore, it stores information about image editing like rotation and cropping which enables the user to revert the changes later on. 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.
Technical details The lossy compressed HEIC format is based on HEVC (High Efficiency Video Compression), which was also developed by MPEG. Together with transparency and the ability to store more than one image, HEIC files can also contain 16-bit colors, whereas JPG files can only support 8-bit. HEIC files still have some compatibility issues, even though they are already posted and saved to social media or cloud storage as JPG images since they are automatically converted. Third-party apps or computer programs can still have difficulties interpreting HEIC files though. Luckily, you can disable saving images as HEIC on a iOS 11 device by going to Settings > Camera > Formats > Most Compatible, which will force iOS 11 to save images in the JPEG format. 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.
