Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a DDS (DirectDraw Surface) file and from this, create a new image saved in the WEBP (WebP) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DDS to WEBP.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DDS file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DDS to WEBP conversion has completed, you can download your WEBP file straight away.
We aim to process all DDS to WEBP conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the DDS file you submit to us. The resulting WEBP file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DDS to WEBP tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our DDS conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
|Full Name||DirectDraw Surface|
The DDS file format was introduced my Microsoft in 1999 intended to be its standard image format for the DirectX 7 3D graphics Api. The format is used to store textures for use within 3D graphics and game environments and can be compressed or uncompressed.
The compression algorithm used by DDS was the previously proprietary S3 Texture Compression which could reduce the image file size down and was easy for the GPU to decompress in real-time. The format is still used and there are some 3rd party image editors that are compatible with the format.
The WebP format created to be a successor to the JPEG image file format features enhanced lossy compression resulting in smaller files to a comparable JPEG file. The format also supports lossless compression and animations making it possible to be used as an alternative to Animated GIF's.
The format has its limitations such as a maximum width of 16384 pixels. Support for displaying WebP images is well supported within most modern web browsers, with older browsers such as Internet Explorer requiring additional plugins to display the image content.
