Description
HEIC is a file format used for storing both individual images and sequences of images. It came to prominence as the default photo storage format on Apple iPhone devices from iOS 11 onwards (replacing JPG) and macOS High Sierra. Developed by the MPEG group, HEIC files are generally 50% the size of JPEG files, but with higher visual quality. They also allow users to store metadata and image edits alongside the photo, and more than one photo in a file (useful for "Live" photos).
Details
A .heic file is a container, indicating that the stored media is a type of High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) file, as defined by the High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) specification. Like JPG files, the HEIF specs detail that image data is stored using discrete cosine transform (DCT), which results in lossy compression. However, becuase HEIF supports a larger variety of block sizes for DCT (from 4x4 to 32x32), the resulting compression is more efficient, leading to smaller files sizes. HEIF also supports animations, thumbnails, image edits, sequences, metadata and extra image data such as alpha plane or a depth map.

Description
JPG's are often used for web sites and email as they are generally smaller file sizes as they are lossy meaning that some image quality is lost when the JPG is compressed and saved. The resultant 'lossy' file means that quality can never be recovered. The JPG format is often used in digital camera memory cards. The JPG file is a great format as it often manages to compress files to 1/10 of the size of the original file which is especially good for saving on bandwidth.
JPG is a popular graphic format, which is characterized by a high degree of compression, which leads to a decrease in image quality. It uses the technology of encoding of smooth color renditions, providing the ability to reduce the amount of data frequently during the recording of the image. Because of the small size it is requested by the owners of websites, allowing you to save the traffic effectively. It is also frequently used in memory cards of digital video cameras. The JPG algorithm is optimally suitable for compressing photographs and pictures, in which realistic scenes with little contrast of colors are present. It is not recommended to use this format for compression of drawings and various kinds of graphics, since a strong contrast between a number of closely located pixels provokes the appearance of visible artifacts.
Details
JPG is a graphical file format for editing still images, it offers a symmetrical compression technique which is processor intensive and time consiming in both compression and decompression. JPEG is a joint standard of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T T.81) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 10918-1). JPEG involves a lossy compression mechanism using discrete cosine transform (DCT). Compression rates of 100:1 can be achieved, although the loss is noticeable at that level. Compression rates of 10:1 or 20:1 yield little degradation in image quality.
The procedure for compressing the digital images in JPG format is carried out in several stages. First, the photo is transformed into a color space YCbCr, then it is divided into squares to determine the upper range of the color spectrum. Finally, the colors and brightness are coded. JPEG uses a "lossy" compression system and discrete cosine transform technology. The format acts simultaneously as the standard of ISO and the International Telecommunication Union. The file compression ratio is in the range from 10:1 to 100:1. In this case, the reduction in image quality can vary from insignificant to substantial.
