The files with .WEBP extension have been designed by Google with the purpose of enabling the users to store the pictures in both lossy and lossless compression formats. The lossy WebP system uses predictive coding to estimate the standard values of colors of the adjacent pixels. Then, it encodes the variance between the real values and the estimated values. From those values, several are zero or null. This leads to the additional decrease in the size of the WebP images. The WebP Images can be accessed through both, Google Chrome and Opera web browsers. There are also several graphic applications in the market like Picasa and ImageMagick, which support the files with .WEBP extension.
When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the WEBP extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of WEBP file conversion to a different format.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the WEBP file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the WEBP file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the WEBP file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the WEBP file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the WEBP file should be solved.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the WEBP file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
If you have additional information about the WEBP file, we will be grateful if you share it with our users. To do this, use the form here and send us your information on WEBP file.
