Add option to paste images as WebP (Anki Desktop)

Storing images in WebP is a great way to reduce the size of Anki’s collection.

WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller than comparable JPEG images at equivalent SSIM quality index.

  • Could it be possible to add an option to paste images as WebP by default?

IMHO, users should be able to choose among PNG, JPG & WebP. In such a way, people with very large decks with many images would be able to reduce by 30% their deck’s size. That is important on mobile devices with limited space. Furthermore, it takes a lot of time to do a full sync after editing a note type…


I use the Paste Images As WebP add-on. A native option in Anki would be nice, of course.
