  • Last Updated : 30 Jan, 2020

The imagecreatefromwebp() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to create a new image from WEBP file or URL. WEBP is an image format employing both lossy and lossless compression. This image can be further worked upon in the program. This function is usually used when you want to edit your images after loading them from a WEBP file. An image can be converted into WEBP using imagewebp() function.

Syntax:

resource imagecreatefromwebp( string $filename )

Parameters:This function accepts a single parameter $filename which holds the name of image.

Return Value: This function returns an image resource identifier on success, FALSE on errors.

Below given programs illustrate the imagecreatefromwebp() function in PHP:

// Load an WEBP image from local folder
// You can convert any image to WEBP using
// imagewebp() function or online convertors
$im = imagecreatefromwebp('./geeksforgeeks.webp');
  
// View the loaded image in browser
imagewebp($im);
imagedestroy($im);
