Output file formats vs. Algorithms (Upscaling types + Presets)

Do you need to align to a specific image output format?

In this article, you'll find out what output file formats you can choose when enhancing your images with LE Web Platform.

OPERATIONS - Upscale type

When processing your images with Upscaling types (Photo, Digital Art, Smart Enhance, Smart Resize), without selecting a specific image output format from the ‘Save to format’ drop-down list, all of them will be saved by default to JPEG:

You can, however, use the Save to format drop-down list to select your preferred output file format among JPEG, PNG, and AUTO when editing with Upscaling types.

To do that:

head to the Show advanced options tap in the right bottom corner (just above the Start processing button)
Save to format
choose from JPEG, PNG & AUTO

The file output format has to be set on each session whenever the demanded file has to be different than JPEG



By default, the E-commerce output file is set to JPEG. If other output file format is required, the E-commerce Preset allows you to choose from the same output file formats predefined for Upscaling types.

Choice among:
JPEG, PNG, AUTO ( = jpeg)


Real estate 👉🏻 Always JPEG
No choice

The Real Estate Preset produces only JPEG output files


The Printing Preset always converts your output images according to the initial input files, i.e. (Input Image JPEG is converted to Output Image JPEG; Input Image PNG is converted to Output Image PNG; Input Image WebP is converted to Output Image JPEG).

Printing Preset 👉🏻 No choice
Input JPEG = Output JPEG
Input PNG = Output PNG
Input WebP = Output JPEG
