Why do you want to do that? wget or curl would work much better. – Renan Mar 30 '12 at 0:33

you could do a request for the individual file by typing:

GET /Pictures/Motorcycles/15.jpg, but, this will pull back the headers and more - you could strip the headers and save the body as a .jpg file, but, it is very awkward.

For example, this is what I see when requesting Google's logo:

enter image description here


The best thing you can do is use a program such as Curl which is actually designed for doing this and you could just type "curl http://yobuddy.dude/Pictures/Motorcycles/15.jpg` and it will save the picture directly without any fuss or problems.
