I wouldn't say that. The web development world seems pretty messed up to me. Endless frameworks, all of them hobbled by the limitations of the browser environment and DOM. Most folks just using Bob or Jane's module manager to download a hundred modules that they know nothing about (and actually may not even know or care that they are downloading) and then letting us run that code on our systems.
That's where you problem begins - and where it could end. Why not just an icon - even a favorite other-image with an on-click event. Or any such diversion form being drowned in this metamorphosized bloat-ware.
Remember: You are the boss! Remember the awesome feeling of power when you determined that Bob should be naked! Recapture the moment!
My guess would be that it's some combination of vendors not wanting to rely on a Microsoft file format, and mobile browsers not wanting to download every possible image size over a slow / metered network just to display one of them.
Oh, I think you could come up with a few more items than that
There are exactly 3 things needed to capture everything wrong with web development:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Seems like everyone has started to catch up to what I have been saying for years...
Microsoft's WebForms was the zenith of web development capability. True, it did have its issues but it was in the process of being refined and optimized when the entire community decided to change course and start with this MVC bulls**t.
Everyone said that this new way was the right way to build web applications! Considering that the web, even as it still is today, was never designed to host such complexity in the first place, there was and never will be a right way until the underlying topology and protocols change that are more suited to a standardized form of development.
To date, I believe Russia is the only nation developing a modern internet infrastructure, while everyone else is pissing their monies away on stupid conflicts...

WebAssembly (wasm) is what is right with web development. I have been developing wasm with Blazor (HTML and C#, no JS or JS libraries/frameworks). No browser incompatibilities (that I have found). Not even CSS is needed. Better performance, quicker time to market, better unit testing and step-through debugging. All around makes web app development so much better, at least for me. YMMV.
Lots of languages (except JS) support wasm. My preference is Blazor, but the important thing is wasm in place of HTML/JS/CSS.
I hate when you are forced to give Full Control to folder to someone because they are a Very Important Person, and then they go in and take ownership and then remove all other users from any sort of access (to include Administrators), and then they go away or die or something and NO ONE can get into the folder ever again.
And then you get a ticket asking you to restore access to the folder.
We won't sit down.
We won't shut up.
We won't go quietly away.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
