What is unique in WebP format?
When people are looking for an image format, normally the two main concern areas of them are the quality of the images and the size of the images.
If you search the web, you can find different standards image formats that can give you high-quality images and small-sized images. For example, PNG, JPG, GIF can be shown as a few such widely used image formats. However, each such image format has few drawbacks and to overcome them, Google Inc developed a new image format lately. They released this newly developed WebP image format into the web in 2010.
One of the major reasons for Google to develop this WebP image format is to implement a smaller sized image. Even though PNG and JPG image also can create smaller sized images, WebP can create images which are 26% smaller than PNG and JPG.
Usually, to create smaller sized images, image formats use lossy compression technology. However, many web developers believe that if you use lossy compression and reduce the image size, the quality will also get reduced parallel to that. So, this is what happened in most of the other image formats like JPG, PNG as due to the lossy compression that they use to make the images smaller, their final output will also be a less quality one.
Yet, when it comes to WebP, true that they also use lossy compression to smaller the image sizes. Yet, on the other hand, they also use lossless compression to avoid images getting a lack of quality. So, the final output created will be both in the smaller sized high-quality form!
