    Default Any ETA on when we might see an app that will handle HEIF/HEIC files?

    Just curious. Found out my phone is saving in this format. I have switched it to save as JPEG now but I have
    a few photos that will need to either be converted or opened with a native app. I've heard some distros have a
    GIMP plugin and some other HEIF converters but not seeing anything with openSuSE yet.

    Hi
    It's there as libheif1 (HEIF file format decoder and encoder) in Tumbleweed it's in the multimedia:libs repository but not the latest or built... let me look at updating....

    Code:
    heif-convert      heif-enc          heif-info         heif-thumbnailer

    Hi
    Hmmm, I can build locally for tumbleweed only, but some of the supporting libraries are not in the release.... looks like the one I have was built locally awhile back....

    Hi malcolm,

    Is the rpm available for installation at pacman repo?
    Maybe I'm asking too much on the possibility for a gimp-heif-plugin rpm also

    Many thanks for the help you are extending to us openSUSE users.

    Hi
    Soon, it just needs someone (other than myself, although I could accept it) to review and accept

    Do you have a link to a plugin?

    Hi
    Here you go: https://pmbs.links2linux.de/request/show/4653

    I'm guessing it's not enabled in GIMP as it needs gimp built with the likes of libheif present. Tested in Tumbleweed and can work with heif images

    Hi,
    Thank you so much.
    The Gimp 2.10 supports the plugin provided libheif1 is installed.
    I compiled libheif1 on my tumbleweed but I am waiting for your
    libheif1 in the pacman repo now that you are going to maintain it.
    I also tried to comple the plugin but was not successful a month ago.
    I tried a fedora gimp-heif-plugin in tumbleweed just to see if it will work and it did.
    I am not comfortable with it so I remove it in tumbleweed.

    Hi
    Both packages have been accepted into Packman Essentials, so you should be good to go... There will probably be an update soon as have split out the gdk pixbuf loader part into it's own sub-package.
