Lower values yield better compression but lower image quality. Default (92) is a good balance between image quality and compression. Please set a value between 1 - 100
Lower values compress the image faster at the expense of lower compression quality and bigger file size.
Correctly orient the image using the gravity sensor data stored in EXIF
Strip the image of any profiles, EXIF, and comments to reduce size

Unlike other file formats and extensions, the term RAW is not an acronym or an initialization. Instead, it means exactly what it says. A RAW file is an unprocessed image with all of its original information intact, as captured by the camera’s sensor. Information can include the conditions that were present when the picture was taken, as well as descriptive text. Both open-source and proprietary RAW file types currently exist.

How to open a RAW file?

The best way to open a RAW file is to use the software the camera manufacturer developed specifically for that purpose. Determining the manufacturer is easy because they assign their own extension to RAW files taken using one of their cameras. For example, Canon (CR2), Nikon (NEF), Sony (SR2), Epson (ERF), Kodak (KDC), Panasonic (RW2), and others. 


Alternatively, you may use a universal image viewer, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, or Zoner Photo Studio (an alternative to Adobe products). After post-processing (editing) RAW files are usually converted to a JPEG (RAW to JPG), PNG, TIFF, or BMP file type. To open RAW on Microsoft Windows or macOS, use the options described above. For Linux/Unix, you can use darktable. For a multi-platform viewer, try XnView MP.

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.

How to open a WebP file?

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.
