Don't recognize Samsung HEIC files

Post by rafael.linux.user »

I have a lot of HEIC files from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone, that are recognized by Gwenview, GIMP, Krita ... however XNConvert even doesn't show thumbnails.

Can I help to fix this issue?

HEIC format has been added to XnView MP a longer while ago (v0.94 ?) - it supposed to be available in XnConvert, too.

You attached it to a forum post?

If so, the current forum attachment size limit is 2MiB, but you should have been notified if the file couldn't be attached...

But I checked that even exported to HEIC version from Gwenview file, is not readable by XnConvert. So it's not a Samsung files issue, is an HEIC files issue.
