HEIF Aperture High Sierra

David Nuss
I did a bit of searching with apparently wrong keywords, sorry to bother the forum; also been busy with selling home and moving abroad so not keeping up fully w/news.

One problem I recall from iOS 11 is shooting photos in HEIF. I use Aperture on the Mac for photo handling and am thinking to forego iOS 11 and High Sierra. It appears online that beta users say Aperture works ok but for full screen mode, which I don’t use anyway. But wether is handles HEIFs, have not found.

Aperture is a discontinued product last updated almost 3 years ago so it's safe to assume it can't work with HEIF files.

But there's lots of not discontinued products that can't handle them yet either. I expect it will not be difficult to get JPEG images from iOS 11 instead. iOS 11 and High Sierra aren't even out yet so it's not like you have to decide whether or not to upgrade now. It's common to suggest waiting to do OS upgrades for a few months and that's especially true of High Sierra because of the switch to APFS for most people.

Re: HEIF Aperture High Sierra

The only place I’ve seen a problem with HEIF is when taking a photo on an iOS 11 iPhone and then trying to edit it on a Sierra Mac in Photos after it has been synced via iCloud Photo Library. You can’t edit the full-resolution image. As long as you use the latest operating systems on each side of iCloud Photo Library, or export out of Photos on whatever device, there shouldn’t be an issue.

The one thing I can’t visualize is what would happen if you tried to import your photos directly from an iPhone running iOS 11 into Aperture. Not sure if that would be possible or not, or if the conversion from HEIF to JPEG would happen automatically or not.

cheers... -Adam

Not that it matters in the slightest, but I’m amused that “Add to Aperture” is still an option when one clicks the “share” icon with an image file. (Sierra 10.12.6)

Maybe someone at Apple still uses Aperture…
