sudo apt-get install webp
#go inside the directory where all images are there

#Convert all images to RGB by this command (you should install ImageMagik to do that)
for f in *.jpg; do convert -colorspace RGB "$f" "${f}"; done
#finally convert all images to Webp format
for f in *.jpg; do cwebp -q 90 "$f" -o "${f}".webp; done

#Read this page to setup it in nginx config :
