iOS and Mac users can now upload HEIC/ HEIF image files directly

iOS and Mac users can now upload HEIC image files directly. The forum software has added support for this file type in the latest update. Thanks.


I just want to clarify what it means to have HEIC / HEIF image type support. E.g. Iphone uses to take pictures with the JPG format. Starting in around iOS 11, the HEIC/ HEIF formats were introduced with the promise of smaller file size and better image quality. Now dependent on settings, the camera may takes pictures in the HEIC/ HEIF format.

Instead of having the users take the extra step of converting the images to JPG format before uploading them, now the native support eliminates the need for conversion.
