Photoshop does not support HEIC images that are created using the new iOS?? I'm sure Apple didn't keep it a secret. Sounds like another pissing match between Adobe and Apple. Grow up and act like adults and support HEIC.

HEIC is the file format name Apple has chosen for the new HEIF standard – and actually, with the new CC 2018 release that came out last month, "Photoshop now supports Apple's High Efficiency Image Format (HEIF)."

Note that at this time, the format import is only available on macOS 10.13 (High Sierra).

MANY teams count on Adobe products being cross-platform for Apple and Windows! HEIC SHOULD open in any latest version of PhotoShop. I have Creative Cloud and updated my PhotoShop this morning when I came across a HEIC photo file sent in from a team member in the field. Very disappointed to see the error message, "Camera Raw does not support HEIC on Windows." Boo!

January 2019 and I am hitting this roadblock as well as someone airdropped me some HEIC pictures.  Um ...  need HEIC support in my expensive Adobe products, people!!   Support it in PHOTOSHOP and CAMERA RAW please!!   My Windows 10 with the latest update supports viewing HEIC in windows Photos app.  Time for Adobe with its $$$Billions$$$ to get on board, that's why we pay the big prices, it's supposed to be the best, not second place lagging behind a free Microsoft app!

Pfff, having the same trouble. I've owned Apples since the IIe and PC's since IBM's first pc, then the XT, then AT, etc... Apple has ALWAYS BEEN BEHIND.... except in Marketing. My favorite (sigh) was the beautiful clear mouse I got with my dual cpu G4 I needed for audio mixing. No scroller, just one button.  Can't have that scrollpad that the PC's already had for a couple of years as it might take away from the beauty of that sleek mouse. Of course they finally gave way and added the scroller to the mouse a couple of years later... again behind the times.  They wow the younger folks with form before function... always.  Me? I like function before form as I need to actually get work done. Time to stop being fancy Apple and just keep up.
