I'm preparing a bunch of files for the web and would like to use Google's WebP format. How can I export photos in Lightroom to WebP?
@avpman You are a Rock Star!!! Many thanks
*jeremy_bowling Apple added WebP support to Safari 14 in September 2020. Most content management systems (WordPress, Drupal, etc.) lack native support for WebP.
DNG is completely open-source, but none of the major camera companies uses DNG. None of the major camera companies uses WebP either.Better != successful.
@allen_stewart DNG is also open-source, but none of the major camera companies uses DNG. None of the major camera companies uses WebP either.Better != successful.
@martijn_saly_5922019 DNG is also open-source, but none of the major camera companies uses DNG. Do you use DNG? None of the major camera companies uses WebP either.Better != successful.
The continued lack of official WEBP support in Lightroom is unacceptable
WEBP is highly efficient, delivering smaller filesizes for better quality than JPEG, all modern browsers support WEBP (including Safari) and as a result it's rapidly becoming the standard format for images on the web, replacing both JPEG and PNG.
Open source code for encoding and decoding of WEBP is easily found at https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/download
So there's no excuse really...
Adobe please give us the native tools we need to create content for the modern web!
WebP exists since 2010 and has an industry-standard for pictures on the web. Yet Adobe doesn't seem to bother. I cannot export them neither in LR nor PS. Yes, there are plugins for PS, but I do my bulk-exports for eventphotos in LR and have no need for PS for sports pictures (for example).
Programs like ACDSee support the webp-format, I still need to convert them after exporting. Pls Adobe implement that format in LR so I don't have to convert hundreds of pictures every time I exported them from LR.
