WebPconv is a free and bulk WebP converter software. It is surely a good choice to bulk convert JPG, PNG, and GIF (including animated GIF) images to WebP format and vice-versa.
WebP is actually an image format (developed by Google) and size of WebP format normally remains smaller than JPEG and PNG images. So those who want to use WebP as an alternative to animated GIF or need to convert other format images to WebP or conversely, this is indeed a valuable software.
When converting images to WebP (known as Encoding in this software), it lets you set options, such as: enable lossless compression, set compression level, quality, etc. On the other hand, when you have to convert WebP to JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, or BMP (Decode process), it lets you set the dither strength, enable the filter, and apply transparency effect.
Above you can see its elegant interface and options for encoding and decoding.
