Yes, over 15 years ago I decided I liked GIMP better than Photoshop - started faster, crashed less - and have used it ever since to edit JPEG...

I noted today that GIMP 2.10.22 is not able to export AVIF. Do you know if 2.10.24 can?

There is an option to export as HEIF/AVIF if that's the same.

Thanks, Torstein. I don't think it's quite the same, but it's similar. It's good to know that GIMP can save as HEIF although the file suffix was HEIC.

In GIMP 2.10.22, saving as "nearly lossless" made a random JPEG 3x larger, but unchecking that box made the HEIC about half the size of JPEG.

The reason I don't think AVIF == HEIC/HEIF is that Google Chrome can display AVIF, but it could not display a GIMP image saved as HEIC or HEIF. After changing the file suffix to AVIF, G.Chrome still could not display it.

P.S. Different search terms found this very helpful writeup:
