Unlimited File Size

Files that exceed the web server size limit are broken into chunks and reassembled on the web server once all chunks have been uploaded. Say goodbye to exceeds the maximum upload size for this site upload errors.

Add WebP/AVIF formats to PNG, JPG, and GIF images

Using the WebP image format, your images can be smaller in file size than GIF, PNG, and JPEG without losing quality. This makes your website load faster and saves bandwidth. WebP conversions that are larger than the original file are not saved. You’ll need a compatible Image Optimizer plugin to display WebP images on your site. Check the Knowledge Base for a list of available plugins. See the post How To Use WebP Images in WordPress for info on how to set up and test WebP images on your site.

AVIF is another modern image format with additional features not found in the WebP format.AVIF conversions that are larger than the original file are not saved. You’ll need a compatible Image Optimizer plugin to display AVIF images on your site. Check the Knowledge Base for a list of available plugins.
