How to Convert Site Images to the WebP format in the WP-Optimize Plugin

The WebP image format is commonly supported in most major browsers, and in most cases, the images can be smaller than the original JPG format file. WebP images are about 30% smaller than PNG and JPEG images at equivalent visual quality. WordPress 6.1 introduced the WebP image generation feature. But, if you don’t want to use natively, you can easily disable it using a code snippet and the CDN at the edge, such as Cloudflare or the locally generating plugin version. The WP-Optimize plugin supports converting new and bulk-optimizing existing images in the media library into the WebP image format
