Try this to count the  total number of jpg, gif, and png images in your media library

Add  this code  to your the functions.php file
function img_cnt(){
        $query_img_args = array(
                'post_type' => 'attachment',
                'post_mime_type' =>array(
                                'png' => 'image/png',
                                'gif' => 'image/gif',
                                'jpg|jpeg|jpe' => 'image/jpeg',
                'post_status' => 'inherit',
                'posts_per_page' => -1,
        $query_img = new WP_Query( $query_img_args );
        echo $query_img->post_count;
Add this code in the location you want to display the count total.
