Comment (by adamsilverstein):

 Actually, as far as I can tell, LibGD does not currently support lossless
 WebP images, unless I am missing something the library makes a single call
 to save images using the lossy function:


 This abandoned PR added lossless support:
 https://github.com/libgd/libgd/pull/327 - it calls
 `WebPEncodeLosslessRGBA` when a lossless quality is specified.
