    Default Changing jpeg to webp

    Iíve got a site that is picture heavy. Iíve gone thru the optimization and taken a hard look at any slideshows which i may not need. The site is slow. Too slow.

    Upon inspection I notice that some are pics are uploaded as jpeg and some are webp. Xara is choosing the format.
    Is there a way to change all images to webp before I upload, without importing all pics again.
    Many thanks,
    -Bill

    Not all browsers recognize webp files so jpeg and png files are also uploaded to the servers. If a visitor's browser can handle webp images, only those are downloaded. If you have a lot of pictures, make sure that Web Properties/Website/Include WebP images is selected.

    Bill, as @Boy says, Xara exports all JPEGs & PNGs as WebPs as well.
    The end viewer only get delivered what his browser can handle.

    This means the Export/Preview is deadly slow so I untick WebP until Publish.

    You site's slowness is down to the large number of images handles.
    If you are using the Xara Slideshow widget, the images will probably still be PNG/JPEG as Xara has not upgraded it to accommodate the latest XDA WebP uplift.

    Drop me a PM and I'll have a look.
