A few years ago I was scrolling through the home page of a large magazine and saw a photo I had taken featured in the middle of its homepage. The pic was a distinctive one of a surprised Mark Zuckerberg that I had taken at a press conference.

When it comes to presenting yourself online – such as your profile pic for Facebook or even Tinder – which type of photo do you chose?

Algorithmic feeds, how I loathe thee. I hate Twitter's, minor as it is. I hate Facebook's, because I just want a simple chronological News Feed.

There's not that much you can to do get a handle on the ever-unruly Explore, but you have a few options.

iOS: If you've tried to manage your photos and videos on anything besides your iPhone, you might have run into compatibility issues preventing you from opening, uploading or editing particular files. That's thanks to Apple's new space-saving HEIF image and HEVC video file formats, which offers a space-saving benefit compared to older JPEG and H.264 formats, though they aren't exactly beneficial if you can't open the file at all. Here's how you can stick with the tried and true image and video formats until more companies figure out how to support the newer standards.
