Out of my depth. Any ideas?

Recommended Posts

I am creating a specific set of search/reference tools for information on a very particular subject and on a small scale. Like Google but obviously VERY crude and 10,000 not 10 billion pages, etc.

But I would like to include an image feature. The problem is, while it's easy to link to a given image, I really need to store a copy on my own server rather than hotlink.

I have NO idea of where to start with something like this, and my searches on the subject have been in vain. If anyone could give me a head start, that would be great.

Any idea how I can get a script to copy an image at a given URL onto a local directory? (Obviously this would be done a fair few times.)
