Exporting as WEBP

You can export Canvas X Draw documents to as a WebP format. WebP was developed by Google¬© to allow lossless and lossy compression for images being uploaded to the web. This format is useful as it allows you to save bandwidth by utilizing a smaller file size, potentially without sacrificing image quality.

  1. Choose File | Save As.
  2. In the Save As dialog box, select WEBP - Google WebP Image as the format from the Save as type drop-down menu.
  3. Enter a name for the file and click Save.
  4. If rendering is required before saving, the Render Image dialog box is displayed. If you would like to preserve transparency, select the Mask checkbox. Configure the options and click OK.
  5. In the WebP Export Options dialog box, select the WebP options as described below.
