Does ShortPixel offer support for "next-gen" formats like JPEG 2000 or JPEG XR?
We considered offering these formats for ShortPixel as well but currently there are no active plans for this because:
- currently, according to CanIUse.com the market share for browsers supporting JPEG 2000 and JPEG XR is 13% and 4% respectively.
- our initial tests didn't show any significant visual improvement while the size of the resulting JPEG 2000/XR image was considerably larger.
Considering these we believe that it is much better, for now, to just use the normal JPEG format as it is 100% supported by all browsers while the images being smaller.
