When I want to process HEIC photos with Photo AI 1.3.2 on my Macbook Pro (M1), shot with Sony Alpha 7IV with HEIC format, the photo is somehow doubled in the Photo AI screen. I could process it with Photo AI and save it to Apple Photos, and there it remaines doubled.
With native iPhone HEIC photos, this error does not appear, so it might be an issue with the specific Sony HEIC files.
Steps to reproduce issue:
Import HEIC photos from Sony Alpha 7IV
Select photo in the Apple Photos app and edit it from within the Apple Photos app, such that Photo AI processes the HEIC file
The photo is opened in Photo AI with this erroneous double-view
I could process it with Photo AI as normal (noise, sharpen, …), this is applied to the doubled photo
The doubled photo is saved doubled in Apple Photos
This is a real showstopper using Photo AI with my new camera, so please fix it.
Unfortunately I could not upload one example HEIC photo because uploading HEIC is not supported. So here you have a screenshot of the view of a doubled photo in Photo AI:
I suspect that HEIF format from Sony is not supported yet. In the meantime you can download the converter from Sony by using the Imaging Edge Desktop (Remote/Viewer/Edit) to convert HEIF files to JPG and process them.
Hello from Germany,
this problem is not a HEIC Data Problem but still there with any other Camera formats. Especially in Lightroom, when you like to adjust a Picture bei Photo AI, in every time it doubles the original pic, which could be normal when…, yes when the worked out picture is the one with changed data, but this is not !!
So you normally could delete this copies, arrange than an reload on your Lightroom Data and will find the right one afterwards in your Catalog.-
This never happens with all other AI-tools from Topaz and loöks a little misunderstanding or mistake in your program data
Hi Harald, no, it’s not a duplicate of the photo such that you’ll get two separate files, but a duplicate within the same photo. Please look at my screenshot above, there you see one and a half cat, that’s all in the same file in Photo AI
