Save HEIC / HEIF photos to SmugMug
Currently the iOS app converts photos saved in Apple's new HEIC format into a JPG image, and then uploads that. If I go to download the photo, I get a JPG back. If I had deleted the photo on my phone, I would have lost the HEIC photo.
When will SmugMug support HEIC format, now that Apple has made it the default on iOS 11? Without SmugMug supporting it, I would have to convert to JPG, defeating the purpose (and benefit) of shooting in HEIC.
I would hope this is on the roadmap, as others like Google Photos have already implemented it.

I support the above conversion as I have an I8. I normally put all my photos in Smug Mug. I find I use the I8 more and more over my DSLR. I use a MAC as my LT

Add automatic HEIC to JPG conversion to the drag and drop sections for uploading from Icloud Phots folder on PC to Smugmug. OneDrive (Microsoft) already supports this feature. Smugmug supporting this would allow us to simply drag our photos from the Icloud back-up on PCs to Smugmug in a simple manor, rather than the current and only way which is to use the IOS App to go thru and select hundreds of photos to be uploaded.
This is important. .heic is out there. Now SmugMug is less helpful and relevant. I love SmugMug for mastering my library, but if you can't handle many of my new memories, it is a game changer for me. please prioritize this and get it soon! I am accumulating a messy shoebox of photo files. which is exactly why I moved to smug mug!

I also have the same issue. Actually, Apple allows you to set the photos formatted as JPG as default. And there are also some third party applications to convert HEIC photos to JPG format. https://www.joyoshare.com/heic-converter-for-win
