A png iterator generator from a given dirname

def path_iterator(path_name):
    for fp in os.listdir(path_name):
        if fp.endswith(".png"):
            yield fp

Or if you want to allow several file types, pass the endswith() method a tuple with the extensions.
supported_file_types = '.png', '.jpg', '.tif', '.hdr'  # a tuple.
def path_iterator(path_name):
    for fp in os.listdir(path_name):
        if fp.endswith(supported_file_types):
            yield fp

Questions?

A = You might use this to dynamically list the content of a directory of images. path_name will refer to a directory (full path to this directory) where you expect to find a collection of images.
import os
supported_file_types = '.png', '.jpg', '.tif', '.hdr'  # a tuple.
def path_iterator(path_name):
    for fp in os.listdir(path_name):
        if fp.endswith(supported_file_types):
            yield fp

path_name = "C:/my_docs/some_folder/some_folder"
for file_name in path_iterator(path_name):
    print(os.path.join(path_name, file_name))
