How to Change Webp Files to JPG

There are three ways to easily convert webp files: Taking a screenshot, using MS Paint or Preview, and free conversion tools (online and downloadable software). 

Take a Screenshot

The simplest way to convert a webp to an image file is to take a screenshot of the saved image. Even easier: take a screenshot of the original web image. You might end up with a lower-quality image, though. If you want the highest quality possible, try another method outlined below.

Windows: MS Paint

If you’re using a Windows computer, the easiest method is using MS Paint’s Save as option. The program should be on your computer already, or you can get it from the Microsoft Store.

  1. Click File.

Webp Converter for Mac

    to webp).

  3. Click Convert.

  4. Choose where you want to save your image.
