Manipulating WebP Images
Convert GIFF Image Frame to WebP Image
Aspose.Imaging enables you to extract a frame or frames from any existing GIFF image and convert it to WebP format. This article shows how you can extract a particular frame from a GIFF image and convert it to a WebP image. Following are the steps to convert a GIFF frame to a WebP image.
- Load an existing GIFF image into an instance of Image using the factory method Load.
- Create and initialize an instance of GifImage class.
- Create and initialize an instance of WebPImage class.
- Access the GIFF image Frame with GifImage property.
- Create and initialize an instance of WebPFrameBlock class.
- Add WebP frame to WebP image block list.
- Set WebP image options.
- Save WebP image.
Following is the code demonstration.
Create WebP Image
WebP is a new image format that provides lossless and lossy compression for images on the web. Developers can use the WebP image format to create smaller and richer images that can help make the web faster. Using Aspose.Imaging for .NET API developers can create WebP image. This article demonstrates the use of WebPOptions and Image classes to create a WebP image. The release of Aspose.Imaging for .NET 3.3.0 contains the WebPOptions class. With the help of WebPOptions class developer can create WebP image. The code snippet provided below demonstrates how to use it.
Exporting Image to WebP
Aspose.Imaging lets you save files in Webp format. This article shows how to save a file in Webp format with Aspose.Imaging, and it also discusses some of the settings that can be used when saving to this format. WebPOptions is a specialized class in the ImageOptions namespace used to manipulate WebP images. To export to Webp, create an instance of the Image class, either loaded from an existing image file or created from scratch. This article explains how. In the example below, an existing image is loaded by passing the file path to the Image class static Load method. Once it is loaded, save the image using the Image class Save method, and supply a WebPOptions object as the second argument WebPOptions class properties can be set while conversion. Some of the properties are Quality and Lossless. Following is the code demonstration.
Exporting WebP to Other Image Formats
Using Aspose.Imaging you can convert WebP image to other image formats. This article shows how you can convert a WebP image to other image format. In the example below, an existing WebP image is loaded by passing the file path to the Image class static Load method. Once it is loaded, save the image using the Image class Save method, and supply a instance of BmpOptions as the second argument. In this way a WebP image will be converted to a BMP image.
Extract Frames From WebP Image
Aspose.Imaging enables you to extract a frame or frames from any existing WebP image and convert it to other image formats. This article shows how you can extract a particular frame from a WebP image and convert it to a Raster image. Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Webp.WebPImage has a property called Blocks. Once an existing WebP image is loaded, Blocks property will contain the array of frames inside the WebP image. Using Blocks property you can access an individual frame image. In the example below, an existing WebP image is loaded by passing the file path to the Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Webp.WebPImage class. Once it is loaded, check the Blocks property. If it is greater then zero then it means frames inside the WebP image have been loaded. Now access a particular frame and convert it into any Raster Image.
Update WebP Image
There was an OutOfMemoryException when saving WebP file after resize, crop and rotate&flip actions. Aspose.Imaging for .NET provides a simple solution to self-update WebP image. The following code snippet shows how to update the WebP file.
Memory Strategy Optimization
Load and create of WebP images can be proceeded using memory strategy optimization - ie limiting memory buffer size for operation.
Batch export to WebP
Batch (sequential) export mode at all
Batch (or sequential) export mode eliminates the need to store the data of all pages of a multi-page image in memory.
This approach implements the idea of “Loading a page into memory from an input stream –> processing a page (for example, a rotation operation) –> exporting a page to an output stream –> freeing memory –> loading the next page, and so on”.
The Aspose.Imaging currently supports batch export in the following formats:
- For source images: Tiff, Djvu (i.e. only TiffImage and DjvuImage can be processed in batch export mode);
- In image exporters: Tiff, Gif, Apng, Dicom, WebP.
In this way batch exports are currently supported in the following combinations:
- from Tiff to Tiff;
- from Tiff to Gif;
- from Tiff to Apng;
- from Tiff to Dicom;
- from Tiff to WebP;
- from Djvu to Tiff;
- from Djvu to Gif;
- from Djvu to Apng;
- from Djvu to Dicom;
- from Djvu to WebP.
