How to convert HEIC image to JPEG using el capitan?

 

Hi all,

 

some friends have passed along pix from our outings to me via email, and i can view them there,

but when i download them they retain their HEIC format, which my 2012 macbook running el capitan cannot open.

 

i would really like to find an easy way to convert them to jpg.

 

i read in dropbox's website that dropbox can convert them when uploading from my iphone (SE 2020) to my macbook.

but how about when downloading from gmail, google, or internet to my macbook?

i have a dropbox account online, and on my macbook, and also on my iphone.

 

i also have google drive, and i read that there was an app in which you could save your google drive files to your  dropbox--if that would somehow be useful for this purpose?

 

i think i could probably move the photos  to my iphone, and then re-load them to my macbook el capitan and they would convert, but there's got to be a simpler way, right?

 

thanks for any help 🙂

Dropbox has no such feature, except when using the Camera Uploads feature on a mobile device to automatically upload photos as you take them. I'm sure if you Google "convert HEIC to JPEG" you'll find many options available for converting the images.
