Convert image files with our easy-to-use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a HEIC (High Efficiency Image File Format) file and, from this, create a new image saved in the EXR (OpenEXR) format that you can then download and edit within image file editors or use for high-definition printing applications. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple HEIC image files; up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

Along with converting HEIC image files to EXR, our tool allows you to also adjust the image with some simple effects, such as applying a grayscale filter to the image. These additional options are available within the Options tab. Along with grayscale, you can also mirror or flip the image if needed. For single HEIC file uploads, you will also see options to resize and rotate your image.

Description

The EXR file format (OpenEXR) is an open-source and free image file format developed by Industrial Light & Magic in 1999. The format was originally developed to be a multi-channel, high-dynamic range raster image file format, which has evolved to include additional features over the years.

The format stores binary image data that can be either a 32-bit integer, a 16-bit integer, or a 32-bit floating point, which can also be compressed via a lossy or non-lossy compression method. The OpenEXR library is freely available to help developers implement the format in their applications.
