I am running the following function to download dataset to my local machine, sf['img'] = sf['imUrl'].apply(lambda x: gl.Image(x)) seems it supports JPG and PNG image format, unfortunately seems in the dataset there is another format which is making the function not work and hence ana error, how can i bypass the unsupported images dataset rows

Assuming the url has the correct file extension, you could do something like this:

sf['img'] = sf['imUrl'].apply( lambda x: gl.Image(x) if x.endswith('.jpg') or x.endswith('.png') else None)

The code doing fine, download parts of the images, but seems to stop somehow, so when I check sf.head() to check if image columnis added nothing happens

It's probably an issue with the downloading; probably one of the hosts you're downloading from is either very slow or offline, or perhaps the host is throttling you.

I'd suggest downloading the files locally first. Print out each URL before you try to download it. That way you'll know which one it's hanging on.
