I have a new iPhone and have taken some important photos for a magzine this week.  Normally, I import my phone pictures onto my laptop, and then into Organizer but these pictures are HEIC, which I was unaware of.  They will not import into Organizer, and I cannot even see them on the PC.  I think I have changed the phone for future pictures being jpegs, but how can I change these 300 pictures already taken from HEIC into jpegs, or get them inot Organizer.  Many thanks

I forgot to add that you need to have Elements 2020 or later to import .heic photos to the Organizer.
