I am running GIMP 2.10.8 on Fedora 29. GIMP of whatever version was installed by default with the Fedora Design Lab, when I installed Fedora 26 (I think) from the .iso a couple years ago, and then it was updated several times in the course of normal Fedora updates.

I understand that this current version of GIMP can open HEIC files, but the FILE menu does not "see" them in the directory. I have installed the libheif, and I can thereby convert the files using the heif-convert command, but I would like to open them directly in GIMP if possible.

Many thanks for your help
