WebP Images

Files ending in .webp are image files. Google created the WebP format as a potential replacement for the most popular image formats on the internet, which include JPGs, PNGs, and GIFs. As such, WebP files support the core tenets of those formats, including animations, transparency, lossless compression, and more. In addition, WebP files are smaller in size and offer more versatility. However, being a newer format, WebP hasn’t been able to fully replace the competing formats. This limits its support. For example, Instagram does not accept WebP uploads. Converting WebP to other formats is easy, though.

GIF to WebP Conversion

The process of converting a GIF animation to the WebP format involves extracting each frame of the GIF as an individual image and encoding each frame as a WebP image. The resulting WebP images are then combined into a single animated WebP file. The WebP format provides efficient image compression and supports animation, making it well-suited for use on the web. Animated WebP images offer smaller file sizes and improved load times compared to other animated image formats such as GIF.
