Well, most new bloggers ignore which image format they are using and use high quality image. Using image formats such as JPG and WebP will make the site faster as images load faster. Whereas using high-quality images such as PNG, if not needed, will make the site slower.

So what is the solution, and what type of image file format should you use for your blog and website to make it faster and look appealing to your visitors.

Best image format for website and blogs.

  • WebP(Web Picture) – Webp is among latest image file formats and it’s an easy replacement for JPG and PNG file types. The image file size is reduced upto 30% with negligible loss of image quality.If you own a lifestyle, news and similar blogs these image formats are best to use.
  • JPG(Joint Photographic Experts Group) – JPG file formats are still used for photography blogs and saving images in offline format too. It can be used for e-commerce site sites and site like where images are mostly priority.
  • PNG(Portable Network Graphics) – These file formats are mostly used for lossless data compression in other words this format is better if you use transparents images in your websites and blogs.

However, if you have a new site or blog and are hosted on shared hosting, it is recommended to use only WebP images as it is the best image format that can replace both JPG and PNG files.

How to convert image format for your website?

Free online image format converters are the best platform to convert your images into various image formats.

It is better than photoshop or any other offline tool and software, as per my opinion. I use WebP formats images in all of my posts, and making them is also very easy.

To convert any image into another file format, type the original image format and image format you want to convert your image.

Type online ” jpg to webp converter online” or “jpg

For example, I use WebP images on each blog post I write and design all of my blog post images in canva. At the same time, canva does not provide an option to download images in WebP format. The only option left for me is to convert images using third-party online tools.
