HEIF HEIC Support

Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021 claims to support HEIF or HEIC files. However, it cannot rotate an HEIF image 90 degrees. Also, some HEIF files are missing altogether from the organizer. I would say HEIF support is broken.

I agree.  This is a frustrating problem.  It also seems a little random to me.  In some cases, PSE Organizer took the HEIC file and created a rotated jpg file.  But then it seems to have stopped doing this.  I click Rotate, get a brief flash of a "rotating left" message screen, and then nothing happens.  I'm not sure yet whether it has stopped working completely, or whether perhaps there are certain HEIC files that it works on, and others not.

I gave up on the Adobe program and uninstaled it. I'm just using the Windows 10 Photos app now and far happier with it. And? It can rotate HEIC files!

Thanks for the heads-up. I was just about to buy Adobe Photoshop 2021 (upgrading from 2019) in order to get better HEIC support. It sounds like it's still not fully there, so I'll wait until it is.
