[POSTPONED] Uploaded images should automatically generated and expose an WebP version

When uploading images via the file picker, I would be a cool addition to automatically generate an WebP version of it.

When retrieving the image via API, there should be URL to the upload file and additionally the URL to the WebP version. That way, we can retrieve both URLs for a single image and add both of them in case the browser does not support WebP. Currently, that’s the case for IE 11 and Safari (https://caniuse.com/#feat=webp)

I’d searched for NuGet packages that are able to create WebP version. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to quickly find a package without an OS dependency such as ImageMagick or similar libraries :confused:

I would rather improve the image endpoint to support format changes, but I need to wait for https://github.com/SixLabors/ImageSharp/issues/121 to be ready.
