A nice 256 byte pouet logo in webp format

category: gfx [glöplog]
If a 210 bytes PNG is shrunk to 82 bytes in webp as HellMood says, I'm curious what 256 bytes can do.

Why not give it a go yourself? Although I don't think webp files is accepted by the upload tool.

Trust HellMood to be the one who comes up with this stuff :)

What's a good tool for webp conversions like that, any recommendations?

I have no talents so I played around a little with irfanview and some c64 logos. The webp file is usually 10% smaller than the png file. (lossless) The tuning parameters didn't change anything.
If using lossy compression at default, the file got five times larger . Compression at maximum resulted in a merely 10% larger file.

Why WebP and not AVIF while you're at it?

50x40 image with 4 colors

Resolution will be limited but I think you can go bigger if you keep details down. Monochrome with fat pixels should compress well. The challenge is of course to create something worthwhile with those limitations.

WebP for browser compatibility of course :)
That image blown up 500% in size will result in a 1k png or 350 byte webp.

Why not AVIF? Because Safari.

The current version of Safari doesn't support WebP either. You'll have to wait until Big Sur and iOS 14.
