Hello,

what you're looking for is Regular Expression filter, you can read more about it here: https://www.akeeba.com/documentation/akeeba-backup-documentation/regex-files-directories-exclusion.html

If you want to exclude those files regardless from where they are located, you can use the following regular expression:

#\.webp$#i
