    2) Update portal-ext.properties with this value
    mime.types.web.images=image/gif,image/jpeg,image/pjpeg,image/png,image/x-png,image/heic
    3) Navigate to 'Users and Organizations'
    4) Create one user and save it
    5) Edit this user by selecting the 'Change' option to set the user profile with a .heic image
