HEIF from iCloud Drive

Recommended Posts

I can import from photos now images that are in the heif/heic file format, but importing the same image from iCloud doesn’t work; results in this dialog.

This won’t happen. HEIF is primarily used internally in Apple Apps.In „foreign relationships“ with other apps you won’t notice anything.

No, it‘s a new standard. It‘s developed to overcome the old jpeg format. New hard and software give new opportunities.

I'm probably making a mistake jumping in to this, BUT...if you have MacOS High Sierra on your machine (now in beta), if someone sends you email with attached from an iOS device as HEIC files, you CAN open them, you CAN quicklook them, you CAN open them in "Photos" or "Preview" on the Mac. But that doesn't work with earlier versions of MacOS. Same deal with HEVC movie files...with the latest (beta) OS, you can work with them just fine.

 

My money is on it becoming an accepted standard, but it'll take some pushing on Apple's part. But I hope they push.

Of course this may become a standard. Would be really fine!

But the fear was, this

And this is definitely completely unfounded. Of course you have the ability to export to every format you like. And if you haven’t imported an image as a HEIF image, it will will export in a format, other applications can read.

You are using the High Sierra beta, @jcburns. Could you tell us: What happens if you drag an image out of Apple’s „Photos“ to the desktop? What format does it have? I bet JPG.

It has the new image format. When I try sending a photo to someone not on iOS 11, they can not view it.

Try version 1.6.5 beta 1 and see if that fixes your issue.

Take it easy ,The iPhone is closed, and that's one of the reasons why I hate it, maybe only the iPhone supports Heif moed ,It would be impossible to transmit directly since the Android and Widnows or pc don't support Heif moed , they are just support JPG, maybe you need to convert them

It is undeniable that the heic format can save space on the phone, however, it is not so popular now. So many times we have to convert it.
