Corel's PSP, do not support AVIF format. However done a quick interwebs search and learned that DigiCam and Gimp both do support it.

Affinity Photo 2.1.0.; Affinity Designer 2.1.0.; Affinity Publisher 2.1.0.; Affinity2 Beta versions. Affinity Photo,Designer Win10 Home Version:21H2, Build: 19044.1766: Intel Core i7-4770, 3.90GHz, 32GB Ram, Nvidia GTX 645, 3-Internal HDD (1 Crucial MX5000 1TB, 1-Crucial MX5000 500GB, 1-WD 1 TB), 4 External HDD

Safari has decided to support the AVIF image format in the future.
The official WebKit page says:

"Added support for AVIF images on macOS Ventura and iOS 16"

The major web browsers, Chrome and Firefox, already support the AVIF image format.
AVIF is even more compressed than WebP, so it is expected to be a very important file format for web authors.

The AVIF export feature of Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer has become a very high priority.

Echoing the previous post - upcoming support in Safari: https://www.cnet.com/tech/mobile/apple-endorses-new-avif-photos-for-a-faster-web-on-ios-16/

Would be great to see publishing to AVIF supported in Affinity Photo. Along with browsers, seeing that service providers (storage, CDNs, etc.) are adding support for AVIF delivery, as well...

I will add my voice to the noise - I've started to come across AVIF more and more lately especially for HDR, other participants have presented many strong reasons to develop this, while WEBP is nice, it doesn't do HDR so it's less than ideal for some of us.

Please don't let this fall on deaf ears, it's important for a lot of us.
