Photoshop: Please add AVIF file support

With AVIF being supported in modern web browsers the need for AVIF as a save as option or export to option would be very helpful.  For those of us that still use Photoshop as a primary graphic editor (even for simple web sites) this will become more and more important as JPG's are replaced.

I am also interested to know an estimated release date for supporting export to the new image standard for web : avif.

Best regards,

Romain.

@Rick  Chrome added support for Avif, Windows 10 added support for Avif,

I converted all my photos to Avif, but I still can't open Avif in Photoshop.

is it enough voting for Avif? :)

Would you please add Avif support to Photoshop,

With the image version of the AV1 video codec AVIF becoming standards and already being supported by Windows, Chrome, Firefox, Opera and even some android devices and browsers.

I am getting more and more requests from clients to deliver AVIF due to the superior compression and color options.

Also, I have never seen any new codec be adapted and pushed this much. It looks like the development and integration is surprisingly rapid for avif with even WordPress and others already announcing native support.

It would be nice to see Photoshop not falling behind and adding support asap for what looks to be the new standard codec for image content delivery online.

This is definitely necessary; AVIF is quickly becoming a standard format on the web. Note that GIMP has already added AVIF support.

@Gladamas it certainly has gained a ton of interest and attention. Not sure I'd  go as far as calling it a standard. It does provide a lot that ppl would want in a modern image format though.

Super curious as to why they might wait to implement AVIF. Adobe is part of the AOM as one of many supporting partners, and we are seeing support today from much smaller (and maybe more nimble?) apps (GIMP, Squoosh!) and some CDNs.
But added and in a separate convo but one about modern formats, I'm also curious to see if they have plans about the JPEG XL. This is being supported by the JPEG committee, and promoted by google x cloudinary (format authors). A format with very modern features, and support from Adobe would also go a long way. TBC.
