    Implemented JPEG XL Support

    Hello!

    Are there plans to support JPEG XL format in IrfanView?

    It's open source and free to use.

    Hello,

    Just read this article on heise.de:
    https://www.heise.de/news/JPEG-XL-so...n-5022986.html

    and asked me the same question - are there plans to support JPEG XL in Irfanview?

      Unfortunately, the only person who knows this does not read this forum. You will need to ask the developer, Irfan Skiljan.
      See Help, About for his mail address.

          I would like to see XL support too. So far I do not know any Windows-based program with this format.

            Has anyone forwarded this request to Irfan Skiljan yet? Let us know his reply and I will update the thread.

              Since I live in the same country in which Irfan was born, I have just sent him an e-mail in our native language and asked him about the planned inclusion of R/W support for JPEG-XL.
              Lets hope that an email with a title written in his native language will catch his attention

                  Is there any news on this? It's been a couple of months.

                  JPEG XL is going to be a very important image format, so it would be interesting to hear Irfan's response the email that Bosanek sent him.

                    Just sent a donation of 20Eur to Irfan for implementing JpegXL as promised on JpegXL Discord

                      JPEG-XL support is coming to web browsers. I'm going to be using JPEG-XL for archival purposes. It has two key features perfect for this:
                      • JPEG-XL has excellent lossless compression, better than PNG and lossless WebP, much faster than OptiPNG and PNGOut.
                      • JPEG-XL can losslessly and more efficiently compress standard JPEGs, this process is completely reversible, so you can get the original JPEG file.
                      My system: IrfanView 4.58 64bit, Windows 10 21H2, Intel Core i5-3570, 16GB RAM, AMD Radeon RX550 2GB

                        It doesn't look like anyone has updated the folks in this thread, so I'll say this: Irfan has added JPEG XL support to a test version of IrfanView. More info here:
                        https://old.reddit.com/r/jpegxl/comm...compatibility/

                        I'm also super excited for JPEG XL. It has gotten great results for everything I've tried it on.

                          Direct download to the test version.

                          Read the instructions for installation in "How to.txt"
