Image Grabber

While I was mooching around in the 'Resources' folder I thought
I would play with the 'Image Grabber' stack.

This comes with the BBC News front page as its default URL;
and it did a jolly good job of downloading 27 of the 90+ images
it claimed it had downloaded from that webpage.

When I changed the URL to that of my website:

it failed to download some of the images, and those
it downloaded were corrupted and unopenable.

I have done nothing 'clever' to protect the images on
my website so don't quite understand what is happening.
