Why is my photos now heic format
It's annoying as I was not asked. 
I no longer have the ability to share photos 

So key question is how do I select jpeg format.
I change it in Camera but can not see how to do it in Gallery
Please don't tell me I dont have to convert each heic file now to jpeg

Hi, I dont think Gallery app allows you to convert HEIC to JPG ( unless you edit and save each photo as a copy). 

A simple Google search lists apps that can convert HEIC images to JPG. I have not used any, so cannot comment. I also came across one from Microsoft for Windows.

Hope this helps.

There used to be an auto convert  HEIC to JPEG  for sharing in the Gallery Settings but it was removed https://videoconverter.wondershare.com/convert/heic-to-jpg-on-samsung.html 

Some Android options here https://www.mobikin.com/heic/convert-heic-to-jpg-on-android.html
