    Are HEIC files compatible with Lightroom 6?

    I have the standalone version of Lightroom 6 on my Mac. When I try importing HEIC files I can't seem to do so. Is Lightroom 6 compatible with HEIC files? I have a MacBook Pro (2015) and am running Mojave 10.14.6. I'm wondering if there is a setting I need to tweak?

    Curious if it’s a good idea to disable Scene Detection in Camera settings if I edit most of my mobile photos in Lightroom. The idea being, I’m reducing the amount of automatic image processing in favor of my own. Curious if anyone has experimented with this, and what you would advise.
