Hi Tim,

I am sorry but your command does not work. It only downloads the thumbnails
from the first page
and follows none of the links. Open the link in a browser. Click on the
pictures to get a larger picture.
There is a link "high quality picture" the pictures behind those links are
the ones i want to download.
Regex being ".*little-nemo.*n\l.jpeg". And not only the first page but from
the other search result pages, too.
Can you work that one out? Does this work with wget? Best result would be
if the visited html-pages were
deleted by wget. But if they stay I can delete them afterwards. But
automatism would be better, that's why I am
trying to use wget ;)

Thanks for the information on the filename and path, though.
