Settings - Next-gen Images Support
WebP and AVIF images are the next generations of image formats, specially designed for the web. WebP images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs and 25-34% smaller than comparable JPEG images, while AVIF promises images 50% smaller than JPG, and still keeping the same image quality.
Being a newer format, AVIF is less supported by browsers, so you should take it into account when enabling these options.
