The past years have seen an increase of WebP images on websites and for good reasons. Not only does the format come with a better optimized compression algorithm, but the reduced size is done with minimal quality loss. Therefore, if you are planning to design a website or revamp your current one, you might want to learn more about the format.
ScreenToWebP is a dedicated tool designed to help you create WebP animations with both lossy and lossless compression.
Select an area to create an animated WebP file
The application boasts a rather rugged interface that consists of a small, but resizable window that indicates the area of the desktop that can be recorded. In the lower section, the app displays the exact coordinates on the desktop and the size of the animation or image you are making.
During the capture, the tool enables you to adjust the speed from 1 frame to 25 frames per second. Therefore, the tool may be suitable for capturing areas from apps capable of high resolution displays as well. You will be happy to learn that the tool provides some tools for retouching the captured area. Therefore, you can delete frames, insert images and add slow motion before creating the WebP file.
Allows you to convert GIF files to WebP
According to the developer, the application can also convert GIF files to WebP, an option that can come in handy if you plan to redesign your website. Instead of having GIFs that can potentially slow down your site, you can convert them to WebP, which is known to easily outperform other encoders.
In the eventuality that you are planning to create a new website or perhaps want to improve on an existing one, then ScreenToWebP can lend you a hand with the animations and images included.
