is there some way to support webp using ImageMagick in Laravel?

ImageMagick != Imagick

Imagick supports everything, that ImageMagick supports. So if you compile ImageMagick with WebP support, you can make use of it in PHP/imagick.

Thank you for answers, but I am really noob and have no idea how to compile ImageMagick with webp support. All I know that it has to be compiled with libwebp

Install libwebp on your server and then, try reinstalling ImageMagick, or compile it yourself. To do so, first uninstall ImageMagick and then, use my tool for example:

Hi, thanks for this guide.
I see this message with the command "php -v":

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '' (tried: /usr/lib/php/20190902/ (/usr/lib/php/20190902/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory), /usr/lib/php/20190902/ (/usr/lib/php/20190902/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)) in Unknown on line 0

Make sure to compile imagick with the corresponding phpize version.

I use

sudo apt install php7.4-imagick

Uhm... you can only use that if the version of imagick and php7.4-imagick your OS provides supports webp!
