My question is how can I do that.

Wow this is perfect! I was just looking at Themer (themer.dev/), which can output backgrounds as SVGs that Chrome can load. This looks like an awesome programmatic way to convert these to 'standard' image formats!
Love when all my random browsings meld well together!
