Helpful Hints from joeeze: Bag that HEIC

Long story short: in 2018 Apple changed its default camera image format from JPEG to HEIC.

Problems ensued.

From ThoughtOut:

HEICs are new to the industry and thus not all devices and websites are compatible.

When sharing images with non-iPhone users or other websites, you may find that they can't access your HEIC images because their device doesn't have the ability to read the HEIC file type without a "player" to read the file type.

Just like with VHS tapes from the 90s, the user needed a VHS player to read the content on the tape.  

The same is true for devices today needing a "player" to read the HEIC file.

The good news is that you can change your default image format back to JPEG.

Follow the directions up top, which are so simple even this TechnoDolt©® succeeded in making the change on his very first attempt.

This is the exception rather than the rule, alas.

But I digress. 

More on HEIC and JPEG below.
