Webmasters have various levels of confusion on which image formats are supported by Google in structured data. Definitely, it’s one of the important areas of concern for webmasters as images are critical for websites and are used to provide information, to enhance websites, to represent stories, to illustrate Products & Services, and more.

Recently, Google has clarified on the required image formats to be supported in structured data. Google updated its Google Image best practices page and specified that images referenced in structured data must be in one of the image file formats that are supported by Google Images.

The supported file formats are BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WebP, and SVG.

Google’s Gary Illyes has also tweeted that took a while to figure this out, but finally we’re there! if you run into problems with images in structured data, please leave feedback through the feedback tool and either @LizziHarvey or i will look. (just try to be descriptive. “it doesn’t work” is not good feedback).

Here is the Tweet from Gary.
