WebP Artifact Maker

World's Simplest WebP Tool

This free online tool lets you add artifacts to a WebP image. Just load your WebP image in the input editor, and you'll instantly get a WebP image with artifacts in the output editor. In the options, you can choose between generating native WebP or Zalgo-like compression artifacts and adjust the quality loss level. You can also select either the entire WebP or a smaller area within the WebP that should be distorted. Created by team Browserling.

What Is a WebP Artifact Maker?

With this online tool, you can add compression artifacts to your WebP images. The program simulates distortions that occur during WebP compression. The artifacts and distortions appear as blocks, streaks, blurring, and other visual defects. Zalgo artifacts usually manifest as pixel blocks, halos around objects, and general loss of detail. WebP artifacts also appear as blocks, but they're typically less pronounced and more evenly distributed across the image compared to Zalgo artifacts. In the tool options, you can choose between generating WebP artifacts or generating Zalgo artifacts. For each method, you can adjust the level of distortion created. It ranges from 0% to 100%, with higher levels resulting in more quality loss and distortions. WebP artifacts become visible at around 92% quality loss, while Zalgo artifacts become visible already at 65%. You can set the area to which the distortions will be applied by using the options or the input editor. To set the area in the options, specify the area's position by entering its distance from the left and top corners and its width and height. To specify the area in the input editor, click on the area, move it to the desired position, and adjust its width and height by dragging its edges. Webp-abulous!

Add WebP Artifacts to a Rocky Cliff

In this example, we add artifacts to the entire WebP image of a rocky cliff on a seashore. To cover the whole WebP, we leave the position and size options of the distortion area empty, which selects the entire WebP. We set the artifact damage level to the maximum "100%", resulting in severe distortions and pixelation characteristics of high-level Zalgo-like compression. (Source: Pexels.)

Asparagus with WebP Artifacts

In this example, we apply WebP artifacts to a specific area of a WebP photo of asparagus. We select the lower half of the WebP and add artifacts with a destruction level of 100%. As a result, the lower part of the WebP becomes distorted and blocky, which is typical of WebP compression. (Source: Pexels.)

Ant with Artifacts

In this example, we load a WebP sticker of an ant with a transparent background and apply the artifact filter with a strength of 98% to it. Despite the transparent background, all non-transparent pixels become pixelated, leading to reduced resolution and loss of details. (Source: Pexels.)
