Please include error checking - that is, the jpg image must exist before it is downloaded

Try hitting the Print Screen button.
Then paste it in paint. (pressing Control + V). I am sure you know that, but sometimes the simpler it is the most difficult to come in mind.
Nothing else I could think of now. Sorry.

Thanks all, but I need a solution by code....

I found this one and it seems to work....but i will accept any other solution that works as the answer.

DownloadFile  (SourceStr, DestStr) ;

function DownloadFile(SourceFile, DestFile: string): Boolean;
    Result := UrlDownloadToFile(nil, PChar(SourceFile)
      , PChar(DestFile), 0, nil) = 0;
    Result := False;

especially one that error checks for non-existing files
