Convert DJVU to WebP online, for free.
DjVu, pronounced déjà vu, is a file type that offers strong compression for high-resolution images. While similar to TIFF and PDF file types, DjVu offers much stronger compression than either of those. The most common use of DJVU files is to store scanned documents, which makes it more of a document file type than an image file. DjVu has the advantage of compressing files without sacrificing quality. However, the disadvantage is that special software is required to open DjVu.
A special software program is required to open a DjVu file. You must download this software to your computer, but fortunately, it’s free. Download the DjVu Browser Plug-in, which will enable you to open the files using any modern web browser. Often, DjVu files are converted to PDF, which is more familiar to most users.
For a list of programs that open DjVu files, visit DjVu.org. In addition, several programs are available for converting DjVu files. Cross-platform converters include DjVu to PDF. In addition, a page-specific converter is available that allows you to set the level of quality and compression. The name of this program is DjVu Converter.

WebP is an open-source file type that uses predictive compression to create images that are ideal for web pages and mobile applications. WebP images are as much as 30 percent smaller than JPEG (JPG) and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) files, with similar visual quality. WebP images load quickly on web pages and mobile applications.
The default program for opening WebP is Google Chrome (Chrome), which works across platforms. WebP files also open automatically on GIMP and Microsoft Paint. Besides Chrome, all other web browsers support the WebP format.
Alternative free viewers to try are Pixelmator and Photopea. Also, try Corel PaintShop Pro. Prior to using IrfanView, Windows Photo Viewer, and Adobe Photoshop, be sure to install the plugins for opening WebP.
