Images on a website offer numerous benefits, enhancing visual appeal, engaging visitors, and effectively conveying information. Images can capture attention, communicate complex ideas quickly, and connect emotionally with the audience.

However, website owners often encounter issues when uploading large file-sized images. These problems primarily revolve around website performance and user experience. Large images can significantly increase page load times, leading to slower website speeds and potentially higher bounce rates as impatient visitors navigate away.

Moreover, excessive image sizes can strain server resources and increase bandwidth usage, leading to additional costs for website owners. Website owners must optimize images for the web, balancing quality with file size to ensure fast loading times and optimal user experience.


Google suggests using WebP format images to enhance website performance, as indicated by the "Serve images in next-gen formats" issue flagged by PageSpeed Insights. Improving page load speed is crucial for superior user experience, and optimized images play a key role in achieving this goal. WebP, being a modern image format, effectively reduces image size without compromising quality.

The Magento 2 WebP Image Converter extension automates the conversion of all website images to WebP format, with options for the admin to adjust the image quality. Additionally, this extension provides features to manage WebP images, including deletion and reverting to the default format.

By simply enabling the extension, images on the homepage, product page, and category page are seamlessly converted to WebP, enhancing page load speed and overall user experience while positively impacting SEO performance.
