Convert your ICO file to WEBP

Convert image files with our easy-to-use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a ICO (Icon) file and, from this, create a new image saved in the WEBP (WebP) format that you can then download and edit within image file editors or use for high-definition printing applications. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple ICO image files; up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

Along with converting ICO image files to WEBP, our tool allows you to also adjust the image with some simple effects, such as applying a grayscale filter to the image. These additional options are available within the Options tab. Along with grayscale, you can also mirror or flip the image if needed. For single ICO file uploads, you will also see options to resize and rotate your image.

Description

The ICO file is an image format that started life on Microsoft Windows 1.0 and was used exclusively for storing image icons used by the operating system. Back then, ICO files were limited in size to 32x32 pixels with only two colors. With subsequent versions of Windows, the format has been amended and upgraded to support larger images with more colors.

Although the initial ICO format was not compressed due to their already small sizes (and limited computing power to decompress them in real-time), as the size of image icons has increased over the years, Microsoft recommends that for larger icon files, PNG compression be used for storing the raster data.

Description

The WebP format created to be a successor to the JPEG image file format features enhanced lossy compression, resulting in smaller files than a comparable JPEG file. The format also supports lossless compression and animations, making it possible to use it as an alternative to animated GIFs.

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.
