Support for High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF)

Recommended Posts

I recently learned about the new upcoming image format called the High Efficiency Image File Format (or HEIF), which was mentioned in the Windows Blog (https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/03/16/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17123-for-fast/#OALyDY4AdhDIahYX.97). After looking into HEIF, I was wondering if Affinity was working on support for HEIF for Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo (or if support is already there). The initial impressions of HEIF look promising and might be an image format that can improve workflows.  If you need details on HEIF, I've posted links below.

Hi JamesD

 

There are a few threads if you search for HEIF but you might find this one interesting. It's not that simple!
