We recommend Windows users to install the Microsoft Raw image extension: Download
Files with the extension .heic or .heif are supported since version 1.1.1.
Under macOs there is nothing else to do. Here the HEIC format is processed automatically.
Under Windows the HEIC format is not natively supported. In order to display .heic files, the system must support HEVC compression. To do this, you can install, for example, the both following extensions from the Microsoft Store, which are offered by Microsoft Corporation: both install the following extensions from the Microsoft Store offered by Microsoft Corporation:
In the future you will receive normal updates like bug fixes or smaller improvements free of charge. Only upgrades, i.e. major improvements and significant innovations, are subject to a charge. However, existing customers will always have a significant discount when purchasing such upgrades.
Unfortunately this is not possible. But this is not due to Excire Foto, but much more to the methods that are currently used for image analysis. These methods were developed with several million photos trained on special hardware.
All this happens in one complex Oﬄine process, which takes several days. Only in this way can the maximum detection performance, whereby we would like to point out that our solution is a compromise between best detection performance and minimum runtime is because Excire does not run in a cloud, but on customer computers.
Unfortunately, such procedures cannot be trained with just a few examples, or if this happens the detection performance is (often) unacceptable.
If you need help, just have a look at our Help center. With Excire Foto you can also send us a bug report.
Note for existing Excire Foto customers: Excire Foto users have to keep in mind for testing that the previous Excire database will be modified when the program is started for the first time. Thus a switch back to older versions is not possible without a backup. We therefore recommend creating a backup before using Excire Foto 2024. How to do this is described here.
