how to convert webp images into other file format

Recently i stumbled upon the new webp ( pronounced “weppy” ) file format introduced by Google on the Google play store . The new webp image format  provides lossless and lossy compression for images on the web. Right now Google and only a few other sites are using the webp format for all their image contents . Major operating systems like windows , Mac and image editing softwares like Photoshop are yet to support the webp file format .

Since the webp image format is not a popular image format . I had a very tough time finding a free image converter tool that could convert webp images into other formats . while i did find a image converter tool to convert any file format into webp format , but there was no software for doing it vice versa . So with a quick search i found out a bunch of websites that could convert a webp image into other formats . here is the list of websites which can help you with converting webp images into other formats .
