Ridiculously enough, Photoshop still, to this very day, does not (yet?) natively support the webp format. Crazy, but true.Lucky enough the need for this functionality is covered by two plugins:Telegraphics - Free plugins for Photoshop & Illustrator...and other softwareGitHub - fnordware/AdobeWebM: WebM plug-ins for Adobe programsTake your pick.*edit* Jeff beat me to it!

Thanks for letting me know the very information which was already in my hard drive. Hope photoshop will have the WEBP extension soon.

Daniel, thanks for posting! Unfortunately neither of those seem to work with Photoshop CC 2019 (Creative Cloud).

The documentation for the Telegraphics plugin mentions releases through CS6 but not beyond. I tried it anyway but could neither import nor export webp. I've emailed them for clarification but am not hopeful.

The one on Github also didn't work for me. It hasn't been updated since 2015, and in 2016 and 2017 people reported it not working with the latest versions of Photoshop.

I'm still looking!

Regards

Donna

Hi Jeff, thanks for asking. I'm using MacOS 10.13.6 (High Sierra).

I did some more testing. I still don't see a way export in webp format with either of the plugins. I used the File/Export menu; can someone suggest a better option?

However, I was able to open a small webp image from the Chrome library using fnordware's plugin (Github).

The reason that I failed to open an image earlier is that I had saved the image from the web using Chrome. When I saved it, the Mac helpfully converted it into a web link (.webloc) instead of a webp image.

I pasted the URL into Safari. Since Safari doesn't support webp, it delivered a PNG, which was what I needed. So from now on I'll just use Safari when I need to download an image that Chrome delivers in webp format.

As for exporting from Photoshop to webp, as Derek pointed out I can use one of the cloud-based utilities, so I think I'm set.

Regards,

Donna

Both WebP plugins seem to work here under Mojave macOS 10.14 and photoshop cc 2019.

To save as WebP go to File>Save As with either plugin.

Chiming in.

Hey Jeff, can you actually use that image? I have the same specs as you, can I can install and successfully export a webp the way have. Finder doesn't recognise it as an image file and I can't get it to work as part of a locally developed website in Chrome, but it shows in Firefox.

Not sure if that's something in Chrome, although I would have assumed that Chrome would have the best support.

Fingers crossed there's better native support in the near future.

Thanks for sharing! They both worked for me, but the telegraphics plugin didn't support alpha, so the Github plugin is better.

Thanks for stopping by and showing a helpful hand, although I'm looking for a software to convert any extension to WEBP.

On a 2011 Macbook Pro, OS 10.13 High Sierra, the Telegraphics plugin crashes Photoshop CS6.

The fnordware plugin from github works well.

CC should have this natively without having to install a plugin.

I'm using Mojave on a mid-2012 MBP and installing the telegraphic plug-in on release 21.0.2 works for me. I can now open WEBP files. I haven't tried to save yet.

Why must we still rely on third party plugins to work with WebP?

This should not be marked as solved.  Near as I can tell Adobe has not yet even produced an official response to this need let alone promised or produced a native solution.
