This plugin provides Gimp with the ability to load and export WebP images. During export, a dialog is presented that provides access to image quality settings.

Gimp 2.8.x Export Dialog Gimp 2.9.x Export Dialog

The plugin is designed to run on all platforms currently supported by the Gimp.


In order to build this plugin, you will need the following app, tools, and libraries installed:

  • CMake 2.8.12+
  • Gimp 2.8 or 2.9 development files
  • Webp 0.4+ development files

The build process consists of:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..


On most *nix platforms, installation is as simple as:

sudo make install

If you don't have root privileges, you can copy the src/file-webp binary to the appropriate directory:

  • Gimp 2.8.x:~/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins/
  • Gimp 2.9.x:~/.config/GIMP/2.9/plug-ins/
