HEIC image support plans?

  • Any plans to support insertion of an image that is in the HEIC/HEIF image format? (being used by Apple) HEIC = High Efficiency Image Coding.

    We have a customer who takes pictures on an iPhone and wants to be able to insert them into a report built using WPTools, as well as being able to export to PDF of course without having to convert them first.

    I think there is a way to force the iPhone to save in JPG format rather than HEIC, so I will probably tell them to do that. Just curious if HEIC/HEIF is in your plans anytime soon.


  • No problem, really. I think this is the solution for our customer:

    The article tells users how to either switch their iPhone to save jpg files instead of HEIC files, or have the iPhone convert them to JPG on transfer to PC.
