Replacing JPEG

WebP is pronounced "weppy". /(wĕpˈē)/

WebP is a method of lossy compression that can be used on photographic images. The degree of compression is adjustable so a user can choose the trade-off between file size and image quality.

A WebP file consists of VP8 image data, and a container based on RIFF. Webmasters, web developers and browser developers can use the WebP format to create smaller, better looking images that can help make the web faster.

By using WebP, you can:

  • Provide a faster user experience on your site.
  • Reduce your bandwidth and hosting costs.
  • Improve the web!
