Evernote doesn't support webp image?


littne

Idea

Sometimes I use chrome web clipper to clip some pages to my notes, I could not view the webp images in the note.

 

Just try to clip this page: https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/gallery1

And you can reproduce the issue, you can't see those webp images. Very annoying. :(

 

I'm not sure this is a clipper problem, I think it might be that Evernote doesn't support webp image. 

 

I attached two images, that's how it looks on my web evernote and evernote Mac app, it's simliar on my iOS devices.

 

Could you add support to webp format? I think more and more webp images are used on web now.

This format was creted by google for the purpouse of mutch smaler images, with suport of animation (gif), transparency (png), and compression (jpg). They try to do the best of the various formats in one format. Its optimized for portable.

Today there are not lots of websites using this format, but as you can see, is almost inevitable the use off this image format.

I already started to find some websites with this format, and as I save the page in evernote, as expected, the image does not apear.

So I opened this post asking the suport for this already imerging image format.

Please add webp support as more and more websites are using webp. Unsupported webp results in a question mark/clipper icon in place of the image, often making the clipped article useless. I have to take screenshot instead of clipping sometimes to preserve the images. But that is very annoying. Please add the support. Shouldn't be a big technical challenge. Will improve user experience dramatically!

You are correct that at present Evernote does not support webp format. At the moment I don't have an update on if this is planned to be added or when.

Microsoft OneNote supports clipping webpages with webp images.
It's probably time to move out.
Take care with your reluctance, Evernote.

Hi.  Since I'd never heard of this format before you posted it (although I see it's been around for 6 years...) I'd say this isn't exactly a priority.  All the sites I checked for image file formats mention the '5 main types' of JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIFF and PNG - which Evernote currently has covered.  There seem to be various ways to convert from those five to the more arcane formats like this one - why would it be a good idea to add Evernote as another?

The .webp image format was developed by Google in 2010.  I am noticing more and more websites are using this format due to its apprently better site-speed loading performance.

The problem is that when I clip a page to EN, using 'simplified article' or any other web clipper selection, the images are obviously not appearing and in their place is a standard icon/file name all wrapped inside a boxed border.

Anyone know if EN plans on adding the .webp format to their existing .jpg and ,png formats?

Attached is an example note i just clipped...cheers

Hi.  This was already dealt with in another thread.  Evernote don't currently cover this file type,  though they do include what seem to be amongst the top five image formats available.  Evernote also don't (usually) comment on individual feature requests,  though they do prioritise the most popular and the easiest to implement,  especially if supported by a large group of users.  Don't know how much work is involved for them in adding another format to display reliably in several different operating systems and dozens of devices,  but it would seem unlikely that they'll be able to add this option anytime soon,  even if they choose to do so.

There's more than one, actually, all of which I found using forum search for All content with the search 'webp'. There's a feature request here:

Obviously I'm new here and don't have my sea legs under me yet.  I'm happy someone has already raised the issue about .webp files. I don't know how to move this topic to the right place. If someone can do it, or better still, show me how to do it, it would be much appreciated.

Actually, I can just merge it to the existing topic, and you can then add your vote there (in addition to having your supporting posts as well).

Edit: merged

This format is becoming much more popular these days. Very frustrating when you can't clip this type of format. Please add to the supported formats.

From the Numbers I know, the use is below 1% of web sites, and it is not really growing fast. It gains 0.x% per year - I would not rank it a top priority.

Support for HEIC would be more important, and is missing as well.

After 5 years, majority of the web site and news site already upgrade and start using webp format to reduce the foot print of images.

Sorry for evernote.

Lack of support the trending image format, everyone suffers a black box of image like still in dinosaur era.

The point is not really how many websites use it but how many Evernote users encounter them.

I've been running into this issue lately. One of my uses for Evernote is keeping inventories of certain collections/products that I own. I usually grab an official product image from the web to include in my inventory, and lately a lot of them have been .webp files. I found a workaround which is to convert them to .jpg . Just googling "convert webp to jpg" brings up a lot of results, but I particularly like this one: https://ezgif.com/webp-to-jpg . I have no affiliation with them, but I like that they allow you to paste the URL of the original image. So it cuts down on an extra step of having to download the original image to your device, and then upload it to the converter. It's not a perfect solution, but it's an OK workaround.
