    Question Question about "guetzli"

    Hello,

    how feasible is it to make a plugin for Google's new jpg compression Guetzli?

    The previews look very promising with regards to image quality and filesize

    Thank you!
    Marco

    We're still waiting for BPG support to be implemented.

    WebP support was added quite quickly, but who is using it? I am, but I think not many web masters are, in spite of its advantages.

    I don't think adding support for guetzli can be compared to BPG. One is a new format (whose future is unpredictable). The other is well, a new compression algorithm for the world's beloved JPEG, and it doesn't even need a new decoder.
    Hoping to see guetzli jpeg compression in Irfanview : )
