WebP Codec for Windows 0.16
WebP is a new image format that provides lossy compression for photographic images. In a large scale study of 900,000 web images, WebP images were 39.8% smaller than jpeg images of similar quality. WebP Codec for Windows implements the Windows Imaging Component decoder interface and allows you to open WebP files using Windows Photo Viewer, view WebP thumbnails in Windows Explorer, and support WebP in other programs that use WIC (such as Microsoft Office 2010). Currently, the WebP codec only includes the decoder. It will support both encoding and decoding in a future release. WebP lossless images are 28% smaller in size compared to PNGs. WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller in size compared to JPEG images at equivalent SSIM index. WebP supports losseless transparency (also known as alpha channel) with just 22% additional bytes. WebP also supports features such as animation, ICC color profile, XMP meta-data and tiling. You can share these files with colleagues and friends without requiring the person you share the files with to install the WebP codec since Office 2010 stores the images internally in a lossless portable format. Webmasters, web developers and browser developers can use WebP to compress, archive and distribute digital images more efficiently.
WebP is supported by a variety of tools. Image enthusiasts should use one of the many software products that support WebP. Such products include GIMP, Paint.NET and XnConvert. If you use Adobe Photoshop or Paint.NET for image editing, you can also install the WebP plugin or the WebP plugin for Paint.NET.
