How to perform WebP file recovery fast and safe

What is a WebP file? Find out more!

A WebP file is a web-based image based on the VP8 video codec, which is almost always superior to PNG or JPEG formats. This image format was released by Google and is constantly improving.

The main advantage of this format is its small file size - it is up to 35% smaller than other formats, but the quality is even better. And for websites this is a big advantage, as it is known that the more images a site has, the slower it loads. In addition, the WebP file also supports transparency, which is especially suitable for various logos.

WebP uses predictive compression to encode an image. It, in turn, checks the values in neighboring blocks of pixels to predict the values in the block, after which only the difference between them is encoded. In this way, pixels are copied many times into one file, and redundant data is removed from each block.

But there is still one flaw in this file format - a limited number of browsers can download and use these images. However, most likely this is a matter of time and very soon this drawback will disappear, as the number of compatible browsers is increasing every year.

How can I open a WebP file and which browsers support it?

In general, WebP file format is supported by different platforms, so you can use not only Windows, but also Mac and Linux.

You can open a WebP file on any of these platforms using the most popular browsers - Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera.

In addition, Windows also suggests using the following applications to open WebP image format:

  •  XnView
  •  WebP Codec
  •  Microsoft Edge
  •  Adobe Photoshop with WebP File Format plugin
  •  Google Picasa

Therefore, there is no reason to worry: all known browsers, platforms and programs work with this image format.

WebP images are made for the web and you may not even notice the difference between WebP and JPEG / PNG.

Moreover, you can save WebP to your computer like any other image on the Internet.

To do this, right-click the desired image and select "Save Image As".

Next, select a location to store the image on your computer and click “Save”.

Also you can edit WebP files using graphics software like ImageMagick, GIMP or Microsoft Paint, which open WebP files by default. To do this, right-click the image, point to Open With, and select the program with which you want to edit.
