Convert PNG and JPG to HEIC on macOS

Post by amazing »

Hello,

The app looks great and very promising with so many options and thanks a lot for providing it free of charge!

Primarily I would like to convert PNG and JPG to HEIC, preferably with preserved original date/time attributes and metadata. However, I can't even find HEIC in the output formats list. HEIC is only found in the output format settings window but, expectedly, with no buttons to select it as the active output format.

Out of curiousity, I tried to process a HEIC input file to "As original" output format but strangely it resulted in a PNG instead of a HEIC. Do you have any suggestions on how to solve this?

macOS Mojave - Version 10.14
XnConvert - Version 1.83 - x64 (Jan 29 2020) - Libformat version 7.36

Thank you!

Is there a plan for heic -> jpg in Linux and if so, do you have a planned release date for it?
