Support heic/heif images

My phone supports saving pictures in the new .heic format, which saves a ton of space. Sadly neither iNart android app nor the iNat web support uploading in this format. I have to resave all the pictures as jpeg. Which is fine for now but it would be nice if iNat supported it.

the iPhone app supports uploading .heic files. I’m not sure if the app converts to jpeg when uploading (since this doesn’t work on desktop if I export the image to my computer). it would make sense to make this feature available for all platforms.


I thought Google Photos stores the .heic format and Apple always converts my SE2020 to jpg
I am really wondering what you are doing as i do not have any problems with any apps wich .Heic format If it does not work ik automatiscally converts it.
.HEIC has license problems, patent problems as far as i know.

support uploading in this format.
