FAQ

Is WebP better than JPEG?

WebP, JPEG, GIF, PNG are all different image types. You can use any of them depending on the type of images you have. WebP is a relatively new image type that is gaining popularity due to its support by Google Chrome & Opera. WebP is an open-source and royalty-free image format. It uses both lossy and lossless compression. Lossy compression makes the file size smaller but the quality of the image is slightly compromised. Lossless compression is better because it retains the image quality while making the file size smaller. The webP image format is almost 50% smaller than JPEG. It is also better than JPEG in compression. Google has found that WebP is 'in some cases better than JPEG XR, which is an extended version of JPEG. Also, WebP does not need a different decoder for each different user agent. Thus it is also more efficient. Overall, WebP is a pretty good compression format and it is hard to say which format is better.
