How to Convert An Image to Another Format in GIMP 2.10

In April 2018, the GIMP developer team released GIMP 2.10. It was the first major update of GIMP since about 6 years. GIMP 2.10 comes with some new changes, but the main operations of GIMP remain the same.

GIMP itself is a powerful image editing tool. It is capable of handling a wide range of image file formats. In GIMP, you can also convert a certain image format to another format. For instance, you can convert a PNG image to JPG or vice versa. To convert an image in GIMP 2.10, first launch GIMP on your computer and open the image you want to convert by going to File -> Open.

As the image opens, return to the File menu and select Export As.

On the Export Image dialog, give your file a name on the Name section. Once done, click the Select File Type (By Extension) option and select the image format you want to convert your image to and click the Export button.

There are a bunch of file formats supported by GIMP 2.10. From the common formats like JPG and PNG to the image formats you haven’t heard before. GIMP 2.10 also allows you to convert certain image format, say PNG, directly to WebP. In the previous GIMP versions, a plugin is required to convert PNG or JPG image to WebP.
