How to convert WebP images to JPG or PNG and vice versa on Mac

Converting WebP images to JPG and PNG on Mac

Google developed the WebP image format as an alternative to JPEG and PNG for websites. PageSpeed Insights by Google defines it as the "next-gen format" and encourages websites to use WebP (and AVIF) images as they are faster to load due to their reduced file size as compared to other popular formats.

As a result, many popular sites use WebP. So, when you download an image, you may find that it has .webp file extension at the end of the file name.

If you have difficulty working with WebP images in certain applications, we'll show you the easiest ways to convert them to JPG, PNG, HEIC, or other formats on your Mac.
