.HEIC photo format supported

What Wildbook should this feature be in?
Kitizen Science and any others who want it.

What would you like to see?
.HEIC photos supported.

How would this functionality help you?
.HEIC has been the default photo format on iPhones for a couple of years, so it will probably keep coming up since Apple wants to make .HEIC happen.

Hey @SabrinaAeluro,
This is something where we run into a technical limitation pretty immediately. The library we use to handle photos has an upgrade that supports HEIC photos, but it comes with a bunch of API changes and could lead to a lot of trouble with the upgrade. The developers of it even recommend not upgrading legacy products if you can avoid it because there’s so many behavioral changes.
That being said, we are evaluating using the new version with the next-gen wildbook so we can get this functionality in the product from the get-go.


Good to know, thanks for the explanation!
