WEBP is an image file designed by Google to make websites more efficient. By maintaining higher quality and smaller size, WEBP files are intended to make the web faster without losing the quality of the images we are used too. By replacing most of the images on image-heavy websites with WEBP files, web pages will load faster and use less battery, which is ideal for mobile browsing. WEBP files are the sister project of WEBM files and use both lossy and lossless compression. File sizes tend to be smaller but, as a result, are not suitable for printing.
A JPG file is a raster image file widely used across digital photography. JPG files are ideal for uploading and sharing online because of their small size and can be used and read by pretty much any program across computers and mobile devices. It’s the most widely used image compression format in the world and the default format for a lot of digital cameras and smartphone cameras. This is generally because they are very compressed without losing a huge amount of data. If you interact with any kind of digital photos, you’ll come across JPGs.
WEBP files are designed to make websites smaller, faster, and easier to load on desktops and mobiles. But although they’re a much more efficient file type than JPG and have been around for a good few years, not every web browser or system application fully supports WEBP files. JPGs are much more widely used across the internet and across all platforms. To make full use of your images, convert WEBP to JPG in a file conversion software. It’s quick, easy, and doesn’t delete the originals, so you can use both file types in no time at all.
