Name: WebP

Version: Lossless

Description: WebP is a raster image format developed by Google that uses the Resource Interchange File Format as a container. WebP’s lossless compression uses advanced techniques such as dedicated entropy codes for different color channels, exploiting 2D locality of backward reference distances and a color cache of recently used colors. This complements basic techniques such as dictionary coding, Huffman coding and color indexing transform.
