PNG to WebP Converter FAQs
What is WebP file format?
WebP is a Google image format designed for the web. It uses lossy and lossless compression to create images that have a smaller file size, while maintaining good image quality.
Why does WebP exist?
Relying on images with a large file size, such as PNG, slows down the loading speed of web pages, which can cause frustration for users. To avoid this, when you convert PNG files to WebP format, the files are compressed. Unlike some forms of compression, WebP files keep enough image quality for display on websites.
How to open a WebP file?
To open a WebP file that you have downloaded, simply double click the file. The WebP image will open in your default web browser.
What does WebP stand for?
WebP is pronounced “weppy”. Google doesn’t officially state what the P stands for, but suggestions include “photo” and “picture”.
