saldia makes sure that you always benefit from the latest available technology. For example, your store now supports the WebP image format! This helps to optimize the loading time of your store. The WebP image format combines the advantages of the PNG format (transparencies) with an extremely strong, lossless compression and is now compatible with all major devices and browsers.
What are WebP images?
WebP is an image format developed by Google that uses an innovative image compression technology. Compared to traditional image formats (like JPG or PNG), the WebP image format offers significant advantages in terms of file size of your product images. The image quality is maintained or even improved.
By using WebP images, less traffic is required when loading content. This means that your customers have to wait less until the pages of your store are loaded. This can be especially beneficial for visitors to your store with limited data or slow internet connections.
What do I have to do?
You don't have to do anything else. Either upload your images directly as WebP or as before in JPG/PNG format. Regardless of the image format used, saldia will automatically save all NEW uploaded images of your products and banners as WebP image files.
