How to Open WEBP File

WEBP Format Description
WebP, an image file format developed by Google, is designed for web use and utilizes both lossless and lossy compression techniques. This format allows for high image quality while significantly reducing file sizes. WebP images are particularly beneficial for web pages since they load faster, and their implementation can enhance the visual representation of data. According to Google, WebP lossless images are 26% smaller than PNGs, while WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller than comparable JPEG images. The comparison between WebP and other image file formats is based on the Structural Similarity (SSIM) index. WebP is closely related to the WebM multimedia container format.

WebP images utilize a compression technique that relies on predicting pixels from neighboring blocks, allowing for the reuse of pixels within a single file. This image format supports animations and is anticipated to include additional features in future updates. Google has made the source code for the encoder and decoder publicly accessible for those in need of it.
