Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a HEIF (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/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your HEIF to EXR.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your HEIF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the HEIF to EXR conversion has completed, you can download your EXR file straight away.
We aim to process all HEIF to EXR conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the HEIF file you submit to us. The resulting EXR file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our HEIF to EXR tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our HEIF conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
|Full Name||High Efficiency Image File Format|
The HEIF is a modern image format with the final specification completed in 2015. The format is a container format which whilst mostly used for storing image data the format can actually support video, audio and text data streams.
HEIF files are binary in nature and offer an alternative to existing digital photo formats such as JPEG featuring better compression whilst retaining comparable image quality. In some cases the file size can be 50% that of the equivalent JPG file.

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 32-bit integer, 16-bit or 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 within their applications.
