The process of not changing photos yourself
Do you want to avoid changing photos as much as possible? No problem. As long as you have photos on your iPhone or iPad, you can selectively share them by email or upload them to the Cloud Storage service.
When you do, they will be automatically converted to JPEGs. If you want to share by email, you can choose the size – always choose the size of the original (maximum) file if you want to have the best quality.
If you are using a cloud provider such as Google Drive, files should be saved with the .jpeg extension anyway.
