Hi there-

19 days ago, I was able to open webp files in Photoshop so I could convert them into a different file type.

 

I realize there are other ways to around this but I'd much rather use Photoshop.

Ugh. I'm annoyed still but I found the first SERP result to be effective at resolving the issue. I installed this plug-in but I'd prefer if Photoshop updated to make it possible to open these files natively again.

Here are the instructions I followed so I could open these webp files in PS again: https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/docs/webpshop
