Hello, I have the latest version of Store Manager but I can’t find the option for .webp images anywhere, I import the .webp images but StoreManager converts them to .jpg
Any solution ?

PrestaShop Store ManagerMod Antonio • 10/12/2023

Hello Antonio,
Thank you for your comment
Store Manager works similarly to admin, so if you upload images in .webp format from admin and they are converted to .jpg, Store Manager will upload them in the same way.
Please note, PrestaShop v 8.1 allow enabling Multiple image formats – in this case images will be uploaded in both formats. Make sure that you enabled the necessary options in admin pannel.
Let us know if you have any other questions.
