Both the MBTiles and the Geopackage standard supports WEBP for the embedded image format and Metashape already includes the WEBP driver (for importing images).
Being able to export MBTiles/Geopackages with WEBP compression brings the added benefit of both having an alpha layer (like in PNG) and better compression compared to JPG.

Same for GeoTiff export.
It seems like the GeoTiff standard also includes webp encoding now.
