New export file formats (JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, and WebP)

Recommended Posts

I'll upvote this for Affinity Photo and Designer. Especially since Photoshop and Illustrator don't support it natively and the extension for it is very flacky. This is a chance to out shine them!

All the above formats have been around for many years and there are lots of reasong why companies like Adobe do not generally support them so dont get caught up in google hype

It's no "hype"! It makes my website much faster saving 25-50% of original jpg size.

Safari does not support JPEG XR or WebP. You should use supported file formats.

No. We wanna use it NOW! For browsers (Chrome, Edge, Firefox) WHO support it.

We don't want to way until Apple wakes up and don't BLOCKS WebP anymore...

JPEG-XR is on the shortish-term todo list - mainly because it does a good job of half float HDR stuff.

JPEG2000 is dead (it was never really alive) and I'm waiting to see if anyone ends up caring about WEBP..

Thanks,

A

I’m sure there are many users who would like to see WebP support, but I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they’re outnumbered by those who want support for 1-bit BMP or transparent TGA export.

Love WebP and PNG for game development. I use WebP mainly for lossy images which also require alpha transparency to vastly reduce the file size footprint.

And in my opinion not supporting WebP is a bit silly. High traffic websites are converting more and more to the use of WebP instead of jpg, for the simple reason of reducing traffic bandwidth. WebP is out there, it is used, and it ought to be supported by an image editor.

WebP is google backed and initially developed I believe. Google controls what we all do on the web if we are concerned about getting our websites seen.

Please add this export module to Designer and Photo as it is essential to anyone that is competitive in the Google SERP ranking environment (which should be anyone with a website).
