    Digikam version 6.4.0, available form the Leap 15.1 KDE:Extra repository, supports the HEIF image format: <https://www.digikam.org/news/2019-11..._announcement/>.
    A new image format is now supported as native: HEIF. This container is used by Apple to store photo in iOS devices. HEIF is a file format for individual images and image sequences.

    Hi
    Yes, so does GIMP from 2.10.0, however, neither are built with the support since the heif library is not present....

    Ref: https://build.opensuse.org/build/KDE...4/digikam/_log
    Code:
    [  265s] --  digiKam will be compiled without HEIF encoding support.
    Digikam would need to be built on packman as it requires non-free codec support....

    Here it's only gimp 2.10 is capable of reading and writing HEIF.
    I saw in the net some postings that krita has a builtin support also
    with a plugin but I haven't seen a plugin anywhere.

    Thanks for malcolm's help with the plugin, it is working flawlessly in gimp.

    Happy New Year foks!!!

    Hi
    Have been working on an update to cmake building with another distribution user (https://github.com/strukturag/libheif/pull/195), in this case there will be no heif-tools (they are considered examples anyway) provided, just the library, gdk loader and development files.

    If heif-tools are installed you will see it removed on the next update.... built and tested along with the GIMP plugin.
    https://pmbs.links2linux.de/package/...ntials/libheif

    Not sure when the update will appear as may wait for the pull request to be included.
