Support for AVIF and HEIF was recently added to libgd:

It would be great if the following functions could be implemented in the PHP GD extension:  

As well as adding support for the new formats in getimagesize() and similar functions and adding the constants IMAGETYPE_AVIF and IMAGETYPE_HEIF.

AVIF is supported as of PHP 8.1.0 (if built against the bundled
libgd or a system libgd with support for AVIF), so I'm changing to
request HEIF support.
