Cannot open HEIC

Post by Hacker » Thu Apr 26, 2018 2:31 pm

Hi,
Windows 7 x64, XnView 2.44, HEIF plugin from https://www.xnview.com/download/plugins/heif_x32.zip unpacked into XnView\Plugins\ .
XnView - Info - Plug-Ins Information... does not list the heif.dll.
XnView - Info - Supported formats... does list HEIF.

XnView does not recognize HEIF images, tested with:
https://nokiatech.github.io/heif/conten ... 0x960.heic
https://nokiatech.github.io/heif/conten ... 0x960.heic
http://jpgtoheif.com/camel.heic

---------------------------
Warning
---------------------------
Format of the file <autumn_1440x960.heic> could not be determined

For displaying of less common formats, the following option is available:
Options>General>[x]Display all image file types
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

What am I doing wrong?

TIA
Roman

Pierre,
I see. So XnView currently supports the Apple standard but not the Nokia one (seeing as the Nokia sample images cannot be opened)?

TIA
