Preview for WebP

Problem Description/Example of Pain Points:Currently, our company handles a large number of images, and the number of images in WebP format is increasing. However, the IPM application lacks the ability to preview WebP images, resulting in significant time and effort spent on image verification tasks. For example, during product catalog updates or website updates, we have to download each image and verify it using a separate tool.

Current Workaround:
As a workaround, we convert WebP images to other formats or use other image viewers to check them. However, this increases the workload and decreases productivity.

Proposed Solution:
We would like the IPM application to include a WebP image preview feature. This feature would greatly improve the efficiency of image verification and reduce the time required for these tasks.

Benefits/Value of This Idea:
Adding the WebP preview feature is expected to bring the following benefits:

Improved work efficiency
Enhanced user convenience
Reduced errors in image verification tasks
Number of Users Impacted and Frequency of Impact:
All our image management staff and web developers are affected by this issue. Specifically, over 10 users are impacted on a daily basis, encountering this problem with every task.

We kindly request that you consider adding the WebP preview feature.
