This is an issue with Arch's libtiff not suppporting WebP compression. You can enable "High Quality Images" in preferences to make it work and/or bug the maintainer of the AUR package about it.

like gardot said below libtiff needs to have webp configured or else the app crashes when importing and xdg-utils is needed as a dependency or else the app is useless without it because it relies on xdg-open.

FYI, anyone hoping to use this needs to enable webp in libtiff, which means you have to build libtiff yourself. Also libtiff needs to be added as a dependency.

asp checkout libtiff
cd libtiff/repos/extra-x86_64/
gpg --import keys/pgp/*

Then edit the PKGBUILD and add --enable-webp to the configure section in the build=() segment, and makepkg -si. Otherwise it will freeze upon attempting to import anything.

Missing dependency on python-gobject.
