   I can't see this Image Loader Tab on my digikam. Is it from the new version ? I thought my Digikam was already loading HEIC files.... I'll take a look.

Hi all,

The HEIC support will use libheif library. This one is extensible by plugin. HEIF is just a container in fact and it can support HEVC image and also AV1. The plugins for non HEVC format are under construction as i see, but in all cases, support for other formats will be automatic.

I agree with supporting open source royalty free (as AVIF) formats, so I
 would prefer to be able to open AVIF and AV1 files before give priority to
 private formats (HEIC is reinventing the wheel, as always Apple intends).
