Google Google has released a new set of tools for the WebP Image format. The release includes a completely rewritten encoder with improved image quality. Also available is a Windows Imaging Component providing WebP import to any application that supports WIC such as Microsoft Office 2010. There is a side-by-side comparison between the new encoder, the old encoder and JPEG here.

With the same quality setting i find the webp blurrier (still about half or 3/5 of the file size)


I agree but I think you can see some improvement between the older webpconv encoder and the new encoder in terms of sharpness (less blurriness).

The new encoder also provides settings that can be used to specify different filter strengths. All the examples on the websca.ws page are encoded with the default settings.
