Thread: ImageMagick doesn't support heic format

    Default ImageMagick doesn't support heic format

    Since beginning of 2018 ImageMagick is supposed to support heic picture format: https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00634.html

    Here installed is:

    Code:
    magick --version
    Version: ImageMagick 7.0.7-34 Q16 x86_64 20180520 https://www.imagemagick.org
    Copyright: © 1999-2018 ImageMagick Studio LLC
    License: https://www.imagemagick.org/script/license.php
    Features: Cipher DPC HDRI Modules 
    Delegates (built-in): bzlib cairo djvu fftw fontconfig freetype jbig jng jp2 jpeg lcms lqr ltdl lzma openexr pangocairo png rsvg tiff webp wmf x xml zlib
    No heic format! And even if I install a much newer ImageMagick (7.0.8.xy), no heic support.

    And if I try to open some IMG_xzz.heic, I get:

    Code:
    display IMG_2322.HEIC 
    display: no decode delegate for this image format `HEIC' @ error/constitute.c/ReadImage/512.

    What am I getting wrong?

    Probably not an open source format?

    Hi
    Looks like it's on OBS here;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...a:libs/libheif

    It hasn't been updated current release is 1.5.1, so two issues, not in any release (as in not pushed to Factory/Tumbleweed) if there would be available for use by the applications to add support.

    Thank you.

    I'm using an ios device and will get pictures in heic format, so I decided to compile libheif from github and install it and then compile a newer ImageMagick with heic and install it. Found a guide here: https://medium.com/@eplt/5-minutes-t...an-fe2d09dcef1

    I'm no IT guy, just a user. After all, there is no problem to compile IM, but I failed to get pango and cairopango delegates. Maybe I won't need them. After compilation succeeded, I uninstalled the IM version from opensuse, installed the new version and found out that I have to take care of the colorspace.

    Works with:

    Code:
    display -colorspace sRGB IMG_2322.HEIC
    Great. ImageMagick is _fast_! Gwenview loads for a much longer time.
