This is a v1.2.4 of the library to encode and decode images pack to get on Aminet in WebP format in Classic Amiga and AROS.

This package for AmigaOS and AROS contains the library that can be used in other programs to add WebP support, as well as the command line tools ‘cwebp’ and ‘dwebp’. With this package, your Amiga is capable of understanding the WebP format.

What is a WebP format?

WebP is a relatively new format for the web. Mostly GIF, JPEG, and PNG are used. But WebP is getting more and more popular.

It is a modern image format that provides superior lossless and lossy compression for images on the web.

Using WebP, webmasters and web developers can create smaller, richer images that make the web faster in many chases. WebP lossless images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs.
