How to convert HEIC to JPG on Android

Apple began implementing HEIC as the default image storage format for the iPhone in 2017. Other platforms have yet to catch up, however. That includes Android, where opening HEIC images in most built-in gallery apps often fails due to a lack of relevant codecs.

Google Photos supports the HEIC format, but you can only view HEIC images if you initially uploaded them from an iOS device. So the only way to work with HEIC images, if you received a batch from somewhere, on an Android device is to convert them to JPG format.
