If you’ve come across Google’s WebP format, you might have wondered what makes it different from other image formats like JPEG or PNG. After all, they all compress images to reduce their size for faster loading. Well, the answer is simple: Google wants everyone to use WebP. The company has tried its best to make it as ubiquitous as possible by making a tweak here and there. You might already be familiar with WebP in the form of .GIF files; after all, GIF supports animation natively. It’s just that now you can create animated .GIFs with less hassle than before. Let us explain how!
WebP is a new image format developed by Google that has the ability to optimize images to reduce the size by 20-30%. The new format is partially supported by all web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Opera and IE11. It’s a very promising format for creating smaller images for the web and for apps. WebP is not yet widely supported but it’s good to know it’s out there. WebP images usually look a little blurry when you view them with the naked eye, but when you zoom in on them using a program such as Photoshop or Illustrator, they have a detailed, crisp appearance. The images also have a very small file size, almost half that of a standard-quality GIF image.
