How can I upload HEIC format images?

William Jones asked in Gems / Libraries

My rails app can upload JPEG and PNG images, but HEIC images cause an error. I am using Carrierwave and Mini Magick. I included HEIC in the whitelist of image formats but it didn't work. Any help with this would be great.


I believe you need to compile imagemagick with heic support. It doesn't always come out of the box (sometimes because of licensing issues).


Thanks for the reply. I followed the instructions in to recompile imagemagick with heic. Unfortunately the problem has not been resolved. Do you have any ideas about how to proceed?
