    Apple's HEIC format of images

    Has anyone come across the HEIC format when converting .png images?

    I usually download images (copies of censuses, birth/marriage & death certs.) in the png format as I found it was much easier to annotate/highlight in that format rather than just jpg before exporting to .jpg.

    Recently I've noticed that Apple have introduced the HEIC format into the Preview app> export tab just above the jpeg entry. It seems to give a higher resolution although it is saved as a smaller size. I tried it the other day but Reunion doesn't accept it in the M/Media panel.
    Anyone else come across this yet?
