Exif on HEIC

Hello,

I see that Xnview can read the HEIC files, but not the EXIF of HEIC files.

Is this something that will be addressed or are there obstacles difficult to overcome ?

Thanks,

Alberto

I have used "exiftool" to successfully read/write exif on HEIC.

Hi, I just used the windows cli executable, not the Perl library.
The sequence reads current "ImageDescription" tag, then changes it, then reads the new value.

C:\path>exiftool -ImageDescription IMG_0000.HEIC
Image Description : Test 123

C:\path>exiftool -ImageDescription="Test 456" IMG_0000.HEIC
1 image files updated

C:\path>exiftool -ImageDescription IMG_0000.HEIC
Image Description : Test 456
