How to Dither WEBP Files Using C#
Efficiently optimizing images for web placement is crucial for ensuring a smooth user experience. One approach to such optimization involves reducing the image’s color palette, thereby decreasing its file size and improving page load times. However, to prevent the disruption of smooth color gradients and the emergence of sharp boundaries in monochromatic areas, it’s essential to employ the image-smoothing function, known as dithering. This technique allows you to introduce a controlled amount of "noise" to an image or photograph, which, in turn, has a positive effect by smoothing out transitions within the color field and enhancing the image’s overall visual appeal. In order to Dither WEBP files, we’ll use Aspose.Imaging for .NET API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use image manipulation and conversion API for C# platform. Open NuGet package manager, search for Aspose.Imaging and install. You may also use the following command from the Package Manager Console.
Package Manager Console Command
PM> Install-Package Aspose.Imaging
Steps to Dither WEBP via C#
You need the aspose.imaging.dll to try the following workflow in your own environment.
- load WEBP files with Image.Load method;
- dither image;
- save dithered image to disc in the supported by Aspose.Imaging format.
Aspose.Imaging for .NET is supported on all major operating systems. Just make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- Microsoft Windows or a compatible OS with .NET Framework, .NET Core, Windows Application, ASP.NET Web Application.
- Development environment like Microsoft Visual Studio.
- Aspose.Imaging for .NET referenced in your project.

About Aspose.Imaging for .NET APIAspose.Imaging API is an image processing solution to create, modify, draw or convert images (photos) within applications. It offers: cross-platform Image processing, including but not limited to conversions between various image formats (including uniform multi-page or multi-frame image processing), modifications such as drawing, working with graphic primitives, transformations (resize, crop, flip&rotate, binarization, grayscale, adjust), advanced image manipulation features (filtering, dithering, masking, deskewing), and memory optimization strategies. It’s a standalone library and does not depend on any software for image operations. One can easily add high-performance image conversion features with native APIs within projects. These are 100% private on-premise APIs and images are processed at your servers.

WEBP What is WEBP File Format
WebP, introduced by Google, is a modern raster web image file format that is based on lossless and lossy compression. It provides same image quality while considerably reducing the image size. Since most of the web pages use images as effective representation of data, the use of WebP images in web pages results in faster loading of web pages. As per Google, WebP lossless images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs, while WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller than comparable JPEG images. Images are compared based on the Structural Similarity (SSIM) index between WebP and other image file formats. WebP is a sister project of WebM multimedia container format.Read More
