AVIF Support…?

  Are there any plans to add support for the AVIF image format?

  This format seems to be in its infancy, not well-defined, but I a impressed that I can save an image from Zoner Photo Studio (ZPS)—which is the main program that I use for image editing—in 12-bit lossless AVIF format, and have it often come out smaller, and very rarely any larger, than a 24-bit lossy JPG with 95% quality.

  As I said, though, it doesn’t seem well-defined, yet, and not widely or consistently supported.  I have discovered, for example, that between ZPS and GIMP, if I save an image from one of these programs in AVIF format, the other program usually cannot read it.

I very much agree…by now many web images are in this format, and being able to process, enhance and convert them to other formats would be really welcome!

AVIF format is not good for saving high fidelity.
Next generation lossy/lossless format for photos and graphics is JpegXL (.jxl).

We unfortunately don’t currently have plans for this. At the moment, we’re focusing on adding support for more RAW files for the most popular camera models that our users use.
