Yet Another HEIC Post - PS CS6

Hi everyone, first post here.   I've spent the last few hours trying to figure out how to open HEIC files in CS6.   I installed the 2 Microsoft extensions everyone has mentioned but it still wouldn't work.   Then I searched all of the threads where people said the extensions didn't work but could find no solution there, either.   Windows 10 64 bit pro machine.   Up to date.

Thx, Chris

HEIC became native in CC 2021 v 22.x

https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/heif-heic-file-support-in-photoshop-2...

CS6 is from 2013 and does not support HEIC even with a codec download.

You can use any number of online converters to reformat your HEIC file or you will need to update your Photoshop to a compatible version.

In order to open .heic files in Photoshop you would need Photoshop CC (subscription photoshop)

that is current now.

 

As far as i know, there is no plugin available for Photoshop CS6 to enable direct opening of

HEIC files, however, you could open the .heic file in Paint or Photos, then save it out as a

png or tiff, which will open in Photoshop CS6.

@Jeff Arola agreed - CS6 is from 2013, HEIC didnt come out until 2016. Apple didnt formally adopt until 2017 and Android in 2019.
