All of a sudden images i use to drag from a browser to the desktop are no longer .jpg, rather they are .avif files and i can not get Photoshop to open them. Is this something Adobe is aware of and will they fix this in the next upgrade? Since its now an industry standard, Photoshop is behind the times...

Hi Jesse,

 

Dave was answering a secondary question from the OP, not the main question. Read the thread again.

 

You can migrate avid files to Premiere Pro, not Photoshop. See these pages from Adobe and Avid for details:

https://helpx.adobe.com/in/premiere-pro/how-to/migrate-from-avid-media-composer.html

https://cdn-www.avid.com/-/media/avid/files/products-pdf/mediacentral/adobe-integration-ds-a4.pdf

 

If that was a typo and you meant to type .avif, those files require a third party plug-in or converter, as was mentioned earlier in this thread.

 

Jane

@jessew58662289 read the discussion immediately above my response (use threaded view which will show which comments were being responded to). It was about webp.

When can we expect support for exporting to the AVIF image format?

AVIF support can be added via plug-in. It is not difficult to create such plug-ins (I created plug-ins for GIMP and Qt-based applications, contributed to gdk-pixbuf AVIF plug-in too).

Adobe provide SDK for developing plug-ins.

The biggest problem is the license for the newest Photoshop which I don't have.

AVIF needs lot of memory to encode, especially for large images. It is better to create 64bit version of the plug-in.

Stop what you're doing and "go fish"

Two years later and still can't open an avif file directly in Photoshop. However we can "Generate new landscapes in one click with neural filters"

After finding and installing a plug-in I learn Illustrator will open these files. Maybe "avif" files should appear as an Illustrator file with a thumbnail in bridge. I mean, who doesn't start their photo work in Illustrator ?
