    Default Open HEIC

    Hello all,

    I am trying to figure out how to open HEIC files with irfanview. The instructions say to install the HEIF Image Extensions but I am on Windows 7 and can not do this. Is there any other way?

    I have a 'new to me' iPhoneSE 2020.

    I've downloaded 'copytransheic' and I can use it in the "drag'n'drop" mode, but I was hoping for a method that automatically gave me jpg photos when I download them to my PC using Windows Explorer but leaves the HEIC format images on the iPHone.

    Using the "drag'n'drop" mode leaves both formats when the images are downloaded, cluttering my data drive with 2 copies of the image.

    Is there a project launched (at Microsoft and/or Irfanview) that will allow us to open HEIC images with no loss of resolution?

    The thread that brought me here

    https://irfanview-forum.de/showthread.php?t=12612

    suggests that using 'copytransheic' via "drag'n'drop" mode may degrade the image.

    Is this true?

    thanks,
    baumgrenze
