  • Preferred WEBP image quality/compression amount

    Thanks for the thorough answer, Marble_Wraith. Between tweaking the compression amount and making srcset versions for every image, creating web-friendly images these days is... tedious. :) I'll check out the utility mentioned in the video.

    Tools like Squoosh exist to let you play around and find the perfect balance between size and quality.
  • Should I convert all my .jpg images to .webp?

    If you want to experiment with with different formats for your images try this webapp: Squoosh it runs entirely in your browser and you can try different formats. Although in the web version only one at a time but with the cli version you can do the same thing. Maybe try it out and see which format looks the best for you

    One thing to add, with your image compression, I would recommend trying to find a balance between image quality and speed. Some of your images are getting a bit fuzzy. I stopped using a compression tool and instead got in the habit of compressing each image one by one using Google's new Squoosh app.

    For your image issues, as someone already mentioned you can make your images smaller. I use to bulk resize then download them as JPEG. Then you can run your images through or before uploading them.

    Just for fun you can compare WebP vs PNG performance (in OxiPNG or your browser's implementation) on For your normal images this will quickly net your a 20-30% size decrease over optimized PNG even in lossless mode.

    JPEG XL is even better, but browsers and other image libraries tend not to support it.

    The 'indexed' PNG looks quite bad. Using an 8-bit palette doesn't mean using terrible dithering, you can get this image down to 70-80kB with a 80-120 colors palette, and because of the solid surfaces it doesn't need any dithering at all.

    Try, it runs the compressors in-browser with WASM and you can fine tune the parameters live.
