High Efficiency Image Codec (HEIC) is a variant of HEIF that Apple adopted in 2017 when iOS 11 was introduced. The main advantage of HEIC is that it requires less space than JPEG (JPG) with no diminishment of image quality. Both HEIC and HEIF are based on High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).
HEIC opens by default on Apple iOS and related applications and operating systems, such as macOS, iOS 11, macOS High Sierra, Apple Photos, and Apple Preview. Android OS also supports HEIC. On Microsoft Windows, open HEIC with Zoner Photo Studio.
The best alternative program for opening HEIC is XnView MP, which works across platforms.

WebP is an open-source file type that uses predictive compression to create images that are ideal for web pages and mobile applications. WebP images are as much as 30 percent smaller than JPEG (JPG) and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) files, with similar visual quality. WebP images load quickly on web pages and mobile applications.
The default program for opening WebP is Google Chrome (Chrome), which works across platforms. WebP files also open automatically on GIMP and Microsoft Paint. Besides Chrome, all other web browsers support the WebP format.
Alternative free viewers to try are Pixelmator and Photopea. Also, try Corel PaintShop Pro. Prior to using IrfanView, Windows Photo Viewer, and Adobe Photoshop, be sure to install the plugins for opening WebP.
