HEIC Support

Description

Allows .heic uploads to the Media Library. Creates .webp or .jpg copies of .heic images when they are uploaded. An optional feature replaces the original upload instead of creating a copy.

Creation of .webp or .jpg copies usually works on servers running ImageMagick 7 or above. Check Settings → Media → HEIC Support after activating to see if your server provides ImageMagick.

Screenshots

  • The settings are located at Settings → Media → HEIC Support in the dashboard.

Installation

  1. Upload the entire heic-support folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins screen (Plugins → Installed Plugins).

Check the page at Media → HEIC Support after activating to see if your server provides ImageMagick 7.
