    I'm not sure it's clear what you are looking for? By PNG I assume you mean an image file for the cars?

    In the past it works from the store, but now only as .webp

    Please don't just change extensions on image files, that's a really terrible practice that shouldn't be encouraged by anyone. Convert them to the correct format. It is really easy to convert .webp to .png. There are converters even online, just do a Google search.

    Besides, if the program expects true .png, changing the extension might not work anyway, as it's still a .webp file internally.

    There is both a .webp and .png hosted, so its not being converted - just the same images available to download in multiple formats.

    If you are changing the extension after you downloaded, that's a different story, but in this case its just pointing to another file on the server.

    If you right click on the image and choose copy the image location:

    upload_2019-3-11_18-26-6.png

    Then paste that into your address bar and change the .webp to .png:

    upload_2019-3-11_18-27-43.png

    Alternatively you should be able to force your browser to fetch the non-webp resource (if there is one).

    In Firefox this can be done by entering about:config in the address bar and finding the setting called image.webp.enabled. If you double click that it will switch to false (meaning it's off). I assume the same can be achieved in other browsers. Note that by doing so your browser will not be able to display webp images and you might miss stuff on pages that only use webp.

    What do you use those images for, and couldn't you use the webp images instead?

    Ah ok.
    For what it's worth, I just tried and I was able to paste webp images into an excel sheet, tho admittedly I'm using Excel 2019 and I'm not sure if older versions support webp. But maybe just give it a good old try. (I did have to use the paste interface tho, drag and drop wouldn't work, and I had to set the file type to 'all files' instead of 'all image files'.)

    You can also make your Windows webp-compatible by installing this codec: https://storage.googleapis.com/downloads.webmproject.org/releases/webp/WebpCodecSetup.exe , after which you'll be able to (pre-)view webp images in Windows without any additional viewer or such.
