Support for Apple image formats

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to import photos into Daminion that are in Apple's native HEIC format. Daminion does not recognize these as supported filetypes.

 

I'm using v5.9 (1785). I don't see any references in the Forum topic on latest Daminion builds that suggests that HEIC compatibility has been added.

 

What is the plan to add native compatibility for HEIC?

Hi Neil,

 

Apologies for the inconveniences! I've asked our developers if they plan to add support of HEIC format.

 

For now, you can use this workaroundto make Daminion import your files, but the thumbnail will be generic

 

 

Kind regards,

Daria

there is a Windows codec in the Windows store for i think 0,99EUR Maybe you could grab Information from that

 

@Daria Kotilainenis there any update regarding your developers on implementing the HEIC codec, it really is annoying that i can't Import them into Daminion

Hi Rene, I've registered the request to add the support of the HEIC files a few months ago, but, unfortunately, due to other priorities it has not been done yet. You can import these files into Daminion, however, the thumbnails will not be shown. 

 

Kind regards 

Daria

ok, I just would be happy to see Daminion supporting this, because the format saves space

Has HEIC thumbnails in Daminion been added yet?  I tried the trial, and added the HEIC extension to allow me to import it, and on the import window it shows the thumbnails since the codec is installed on my server, but once imported into Daminion, they go to the generic icon.  I need this to work before I purchase, because we have 1000s of heic images.
