Heic FileType Plus (09-13-2020)

Recommended Posts

This plugin allows HEIC images to be loaded and saved with transparency, and adds a few more options when saving.

It replaces Paint.NET's built-in HEIC support.


This plugin may produce smaller files than Microsoft's encoder for grayscale images.

For most color images Microsoft's encoder is faster and produces smaller files.




Compatibility: 4.2.13+




1. Close Paint.NET.
2. Place HeicFileTypePlus.dll, HeicFileTypePlusIO_x86.dll and HeicFileTypePlusIO_x64.dll in the Paint.NET FileTypes folder which is usually located in one the following locations depending on the Paint.NET version you have installed.

  Classic: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes    
  Microsoft Store: Documents\paint.net App Files\FileTypes

3. Open the Windows Run dialog (Start > Run or Windows Key + R)
4. Type paintdotnet:/set:FileTypes/BuiltInHEICFileTypeEnabled=false and press the Enter key
5. Restart Paint.NET.
