What’s HEIC(HEIF) format?
Since iOS 11 was released, Apple announced they had replaced the old jpg images to HEIC format in this new iOS to save much storage space in iPhone. As we all know, HEIF stands for High Efficiency Image Format, and, as the name suggests, is a more streamlined way to store image files. So HEIC format is introduced by Apple for the new HEIF standard. By using this file format, you will get more storage space in your iPhone and still retain the high quality images. That’s why Apple chose it as the alternative for JPEG format.
However, it also brings shortages while you are trying to put the images on other devices, because HEIC format is not compatible with most portable devices currently. How to deal with this issue?

Output all images: Considering HEIC is a special format that can include a sequence of Apple's live photos as well as animation with plenty of images. If you tick this one, you can find all images in your destination files. Otherwise, only main image can be converted.
Keep aspect ratio: When the resolution adjusted is not same as the original image, the converted one will be different in aspect ratio and the output image can even become blurred. To maintain original aspect ratio, you need to tick this option and then you will see the output one with Gaussian blur.
Keep Exif information: The output files will show Exif data for a photo made with a typical digital camera. Exif information includes Manufacturer, Model, Orientation (rotation), Date and time, Exposure bias, FlashPix version and so on. Only when you choose JPG as your output format can you see this option.
