In a response to a question on the JEA Listserv a few weeks ago, Tracy Anne Sena offered up a link to a quick Google search to help people who were having issues with HEIC camera images with their publications — specifically news websites that needed JPG files. If you’re looking to convert HEIC files on a Chromebook, check out some of these extensions for your Chromebook and select one you like.
