Automatic WebP Image Conversion & Delivery

At the time of writing Firefox and Safari do not yet support the relatively new image format WebP. However, the 75% Chrome users worldwide are already a pretty big crowd that could make use of them. According to Google the images are between 25 and 34% smaller, which would really benefit Webflow’s Pagespeed scores. The WebP images should be generated on upload and automatically served to all browsers that support it.

    Let's see this become a reality. Lotties are great, gifs are fat, let's get some webms and webps.

    We are planning to switch to webflow from HubSpot's CMS (which does this automatically). We would love for this to be available on webflow as well.

    Come on, Webflow. Implement this. WebP is supported by all modern browsers except Safari (support coming soon though) and this would really improve Pagespeed / Lighthouse scores.

    Yes, these scores aren't the be all and end all. But many of us, and our clients, use them. It'd be great to not need to explain this gaping hole to clients who otherwise love Webflow.

    To update the original wishlist summary, Firefox DOES support WebP now, as some have mentioned.

    Only Safari is the holdout.

    Really in need of this, a few clients are starting to supply me with WebP images which I still can't upload!

    This would be big! Some of my well-informed customers are also asking for it. Webflow page speeds are good already but this would make the sites untouchable!

    Let's go guys from Webflow.
    We really need this function. You don't need to create an engine that I do the conversion automatically.

    We can convert the images into Photoshop and host them, but Webflow should be able to get you through it.

    Thankful!

    Stumbled on this hoping for a solution for adding WebP images via WebFlow. I'm very surprised to find that it's not possible. It's a MUST with today's modern browsers.

     

    In order to do this (including fallback) I implemented the following...

    <picture>
    <source srcset="/images/man_seated.webp" type="image/webp">
    <source srcset="/images/man_seated.jpg" type="image/jpeg">
    <img src="/images/man_seated.jpg" alt="Man seated" data-ix="scroll-left" width="378" class="seated">
    </picture>

    Seems to work.

    Would love this. So sad to see this still not be assigned a tag. :(
