    Thumbs up Re: Any app on Ubuntu to open HEIF (.heic, High Efficiency Image File Format) picture

    @Temüjin Thanks for the hint regarding mp4client. I have not found time to try this.

    As monkeybrain20122 mentioned there is a plugin for GIMP and the most recent GIMP version automatically comes with this plugin:
    GIMP 2.10.2 with support for HEIF image format (https://www.gimp.org/news/2018/05/20...-2-released/):
    You can install/upgrade to GIMP 2.10.2 on Ubuntu via Flatpak or wait for Otto’s GIMP PPA for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS to be updated with the new build (https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/05/...ome-twitch-app).

    I am using Fedora 28 and came across XnView. I tried XnView MP, but no plugins for the HEIC file type. I then tried the XnView windows version (using wine) and install the HEIC plugin, which then works perfectly. Has anyone found a better way?

    On ubuntu 18.04:

    Code:
    sudo apt install libheif-examples
    then:

    Code:
    heif-convert IMG_1605.HEIC IMG_1605.jpg
    NOTE: you must use lowercase '.jpg' or it will complain that it doesn't know the format.
