WebP new image type
« on: October 02, 2010, 05:20:55 am »
So Google has made a new open source image type called WebP which seems like a nice option over jpeg. Seems they got a better compression rate (40% or so better) with the same quality.
It would be nice to see this format supported in JPCT or as a separate library. Anyone up for the challenge?  :)

Thanks for sharing. I think I might use a jpg crush type program instead. Its probably too early stages for WebP. I could see there is some Java versions for the other image types that were brought up.
