GIF images can be compressed into WebP format, a lightweight file type supported by most modern browsers. GIF animations can now be converted into WebP images in a few easy steps. Other than being smaller in size, WebP also provides better color fidelity and higher resolution than the original GIF file. Compared to YouTube’s lossy GIF compression algorithm, which often loses fine details and image quality, WebP is much better at preserving detail and image quality. Additionally, since it’s a lossless format, there’s no need for any additional compression or encoding step. You simply upload your original GIF to the WebP converter website and get a quality-optimized WebP version back in return.
