I'm having an upload issue

Posted under Bugs & Features

I've realized that the images I've uploaded aren't the file format I want them to be.

Every .png I've uploaded directly (not through twitter or Pixiv) was converted into .webp

Is anyone else having this issue?
If so. how did you fix it?

Thank you for contributing to danbooru! Your help is much appreciated. You can request file replacement of accidentally uploades sample images in topic #16765

It's generally not advised to upload from disk as it's not obvious how to obtain the best quality image from most artist websites. On the upload page you can simply paste the link to a post (example: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/103319098) and danbooru will automatically grab the best version of the image for you.

Danbooru doesn't modify the files you upload. We always preserve the original unmodified file. I would guess the files you thought were PNGs were actually WebP files saved with the wrong file extension.

I found the problem. It was my emulator.

After extracting my assets using two separate emulators, I've noticed that they were different in size.
Both were labeled as png, but their filesizes were vastly different.
