Google Photos, the "bug" of the unlimited backup of HEIC will be solved
Google has said that they will fix the "bug" of the file HEIC in the Picture, which allows you, in a sense, to bypass the compression in the backup mode to "high quality". For all the details on this issue, which benefits in particular the owners of iPhone recent (but also other Android smartphones, for example Galaxy S10 and Notes 10), we invite you to read the article we published last Friday; the juice, for those in a hurry, is this:
Google Photos doesn't compress the images uploaded in the HEIC, because the JPG compressed drift would be larger than the original; thus all of the devices that save photos in this format (including the iPhone, but not only) have made the backup of unlimited original quality free. Google, however, do not explain it well, so it's good to keep in mind some limitations - in particular, the images retouched Photos can only be downloaded in JPG compressed.
Once you understand the nature of the problem, the statement of Google is rather curious: it is already difficult to call it a "bug" (is not an error that the file HEIC to occupy less of a JPG), let alone to imagine how it could be solved. The only sensible solution for Google would be to adopt HEIC or another format that is more efficient than JPG (maybe "his" WebP, also derived from the hevc analyzer), or at least to further compress the HEIC loaded. We just have to wait for updates.Camera Wide at the best price? LG G7 ThinQ is on offer today on of 349 euro. CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING
