Convert WEBP to GIF without losing quality online using this free online tool.
A WEBP file is a raster image format developed by Google for online graphics called WebP. The WebP format compresses files more efficiently than typical JPEG compression while preserving picture quality that is comparable to or greater than that of JPEG. Like the PNG format, it enables both lossless and lossy compression.
Google has made aggressive claims regarding the format's compression efficiency, claiming that it may be up to 34% cheaper than a JPEG or PNG file. Because of the large number of photographs being seen at any one moment throughout the world, Google believes that by adopting a more effective image format, the web's overall performance may be optimized.
A GIF file is an image stored in the Graphical Interchange Format (GIF) which is pronounced by "jiff". It can contain up to 256 indexed colors, and the color palette can be a predetermine group of colors or match the colors in the image. GIF files are stored in lossless format, which means that sharpness of the image is not affected by GIF compression.
The GIF format was first published by CompuServe in 1987, although it was last modified in 1989. In plenty of other words, GIF is slightly older than the Rest Of The internet and is older than around 35% of the United States population.
