Just as there is a tool that allows you to add watermarks to images and there is also another that allows you to regenerate thumbnails. It would be a good idea to add a new tool that allows you to convert existing images to the new WEBP formats.

I agree as well. It will be great, if we can import images in webp format. Now it's big problem with images, because manager can't import webp format images.
