dwebp - decompress a WebP file to an image file
dwebp [options] input_file.webp
This manual page documents the dwebp command. dwebp decompresses WebP files into PNG, PAM, PPM or PGM images.
The basic options are: -h Print usage summary. -version Print the version number (as major.minor.revision) and exit. -o string Specify the name of the output file (as PNG format by default). -pam Change the output format to PAM (retains alpha). -ppm Change the output format to PPM (discards alpha). -pgm Change the output format to PGM. The output consists of luma/chroma samples instead of RGB, using the ICM4 layout. This option is mainly for verification and debugging purposes. -yuv Change the output format to raw YUV. The output consists of luma/chroma-U/chroma-V samples instead of RGB, saved sequentially as individual planes. This option is mainly for verification and debugging purposes. -nofancy Don't use the fancy upscaler for YUV420. This may lead to jaggy edges (especially the red ones), but should be faster. -nofilter Don't use the in-loop filtering process even if it is required by the bitstream. This may produce visible blocks on the non-compli- ant output, but will make the decoding faster. -mt Use multi-threading for decoding, if possible. -crop x_position y_position width height Crop the decoded picture to a rectangle with top-left corner at coordinates (x_position, y_position) and size width x height. This cropping area must be fully contained within the source rectangle. The top-left corner will be snapped to even coordinates if needed. This option is meant to reduce the memory needed for cropping large images. Note: the cropping is applied before any scal- ing. -scale width height Rescale the decoded picture to dimension width x height. This option is mostly intended to reducing the memory needed to decode large images, when only a small version is needed (thumbnail, preview, etc.). Note: scaling is applied after cropping. -v Print extra information (decoding time in particular). -noasm Disable all assembly optimizations.
