I can see both file types using Google Photos. The problem is, if I download the .HEIC file to my Windows computer, it can't open it. It just shows up as an outline of a white empty box. And, if I view it in my Android's version of Google Photos, I can see it, but I can't edit it.
Mrs Geek's Advice
If you are using all Apple devices, you're fine. But, if there are any Windows devices in your mix - or if you're sharing some of your Google Photos with others who have non-Apple devices - then you would need to be sure those photos are converted back to the old format.
My advice is to turn back the clock and change your iPhone's setting so that it uses the old format - at least until the other systems catch up.

I not sure if I missed something. If my Google photos on my iphone are in files and most of them are HEIC (which I didn't know), I downloaded them but cannot open to enlarge using Costco Photo. I tried converting but can only convert the Photos that are in my Photo Library. Anyway to convert the Google Photos.ReplyDelete
There are lots of conversion options out there but my favorite is quick and dirty. If you use Google Photos and edit an .heic picture, it will download to your computer as a .jpgDelete

In case you required just one layer from the picture, you possibly can extract the layer and export it into different picture format. However if you wish to preserve the transparency of the picture, it's worthwhile to export the layer right into a 32-bit PNG with alpha channel.
