A Guide to Converting WEBP to JPG

If you have MS Paint, Mac’s Preview app, or an online converter, you can do so

Multiple methods are discussed in this article for converting webp files to JPG files, including built-in software for Windows and Mac and online tools.

How to Convert WebP Files to JPG Files

Converting WebP files can be done three ways: taking a screenshot, using MS Paint or Preview, and using free software.

Taking a screenshot

A simple method of converting a webp into an image file is to take a screenshot of it. A better approach: look at the original web image and take a screenshot of it. However, the quality might not be as good. Below are other methods to consider if you desire the best quality possible.

MS Paint for Windows

The easiest method is to use the Save as a feature of MS Paint on a Windows computer. You can download the program from the Microsoft Store or check whether the program is already installed on your computer.

You can download MS Paint here

  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. Then, select Open.
  3. Locate and select your file.
  4. Hit OK.
  5. Hit the File button again.
  6. Choose Save As.
  7. Select JPEG picture.
  8. Choose a folder and click Save.

Mac: Preview
If you have a Mac, you can use Preview, which comes preinstalled.

  1. To duplicate, click File > Duplicate.
  2. Once it has been duplicated, close it.
  3. Once you have saved it in a new format, it will ask you to duplicate it again.
  4. Select JPG from the menu.
  5. Optionally, you can resize the picture by moving the quality slider.
  6. After that, click Save.

Drag and drop a webp image into the app.

Select Convert to JPG. (You can also choose PNG or convert a file to webp).

Click Convert.

Choose where you want to save your image.

Online Conversion Tools

Online tools are convenient to use because they work on any computer no matter what the operating system. A number of tools are available, though AnyWebP is our favourite.

  1. Go to the AnyWebP site.
  2. Drop your WebP images
  3. Click on the Start button
  4. Download the image of your desired format.

Fun Fact: AnyWebP doesn’t upload your photos to its server. You can convert your images without uploading them first which is a great thing when it comes to privacy.


What is the best way to convert multiple web pages to jpg?

File converters like XnConvert, which often support about 500 formats of images, including webp, are among the best. You can also use AnyWebP bulk image converter to convert multiple images at once. Their software works on Linux, Mac, and Windows.  

What is the best way to download a WebP file as a JPEG?

Using Internet Explorer, which does not support WebP, is the only way to download a WebP file as a JPG. WebP images can’t be stopped by Chrome (or any other supported browser).

Can webp images be converted to PNG?

PNGs can be converted to WebPs in a similar way to JPGs. The method you choose depends on your needs.
