Hello HEIF

Gus Mueller:

Yesterday Apple released to developers the first beta of MacOS 10.13.4, and I was delighted to see that support for encoding HEIF images was included (finally). So naturally, and only a few hours later (sorry for the delay), I’ve got a pre-release version of Acorn which supports it.

We thought this would be in macOS 10.13.0, but better late than never. However:

Apple’s encoders both on iOS and MacOS only support 8 bits per channel. So that means if you were wanting to convert your RAW images to HEIF but you wanted to keep your color accuracy, you’re out of luck for now.

Previously: macOS 10.13 High Sierra Released, H.265/HEVC and HEIF.
