There are some image formats out there, but not all of them are really portable. I mean, not every file format can be previewed using regular image viewer. WebP is one examples of that kind of image format.
WebP is an image format developed by Google. The internet giant intends this image format for the web need. The image format provides lossless and lossy compression. One thing that really matter about WebP is its image size.
A WebP lossless image is 26% smaller in size compared to PNG while a WebP lossy image is 25-34% smaller than JPEG. What about the quality? According to Google, a WebP image is equivalent to JPG and PNG even if the image size is smaller.
WebP is meant to be used for web. If you have explored deeper at Google Play Store (web) you will find a fact that all images on the Android’s app repository are available in the WebP format. Since images with WebP format have smaller size, they also lighter and faster to be loaded. Make sense enough why Google loves to this format.
But again, the bad part about this image format is in terms of compatibility. It can’t be previewed using regular image viewer. Even not all web-based services have supported this format. For instance, if you are a WordPress blogger you can’t use a WebP image on your blog post.
What if you found a pretty WebP image and want to use it on your blog post? The only thing you can do is converting the image first. That’s what we are going to talk about. There are some image converter which can convert a WebP image to JPG or PNG. Including the ones that are available in the internet. Why internet? Because you don’t have to install any additional app to only convert an image.
