WebP for Magento
- Smaller images
- Less bandwidth
- Faster webshops
WebP is an image-format - developed by Google - aimed to reduce the size of images dramatically. While still in development, WebP-images already allow you to reduce the size of JPG or PNG images. Unfortunately, the WebP image-format is at this moment only supported by a small number of browsers.
Googles WebP replaces GIF, JPG and PNG with the new WebP format, reducing the size of your images dramatically. Unfortunately, the WebP image format is at this moment only supported by a small number of browsers (Chrome, Firefox with extra plugin). Nevertheless, WebP enabled browsers make up for the majority of the internet and not implementing WebP simply costs you money. Browsers that do not support WebP will simply get served the original images.
- Setup the WebP binaries on your server
- Install this Magento module (see download page for instructions)
You can see a demo of the WebP extension for Magento by visiting the Yireo demo-site http://magento1.yireo-demo.com/ with a WebP-enabled browser. Currently the Chrome browser supports WebP out of the box, while for Firefox there is a WebP plugin available.
