Get JPG from url

I need to get a  JPG from url  (Example:  www.test.com/test.jpg) and place it in a TJPeg Object (without first saving it to file). Is this possible?

Is so, can you provide me the code please?

Thanks

The code below should work.

Here is an example of how to use it:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  JPEG : TJPEGImage;
  Data : TMemoryStream;
begin
  Data := TMemoryStream.Create;
  Try
    JPEG := TJPEGImage.Create;
    Try
      If Not(GetInetFile('http://www.test.com/phoenix/images/5_top3pic1.jpg',Data)) Then Exit;
      Data.Position := 0;
      JPEG.LoadFromStream(Data);
      Image1.Picture.Graphic := JPEG;
    Finally
      JPEG.Free;
    end;
  Finally
    Data.Free;
  end;
end;

Uses WinInet;
 
function GetInetFile(const FileURL: String; OutStream: TMemoryStream): Boolean;
const
  BufferSize = 1024;
var
  hSession, hURL: HInternet;
  Buffer: Array[1..BufferSize] Of Byte;
  BufferLen: DWORD;
  sAppName: String;
begin
  Result := false;
  sAppName := ExtractFileName(Application.ExeName);
  hSession := InternetOpen(PChar(sAppName),INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_PRECONFIG,nil,nil,0);
  Try
    hURL := InternetOpenURL(hSession,PChar(fileURL),nil,0,0,0);
    Try
      OutStream.Position := 0;
      Repeat
        InternetReadFile(hURL,@Buffer,SizeOf(Buffer),BufferLen);
        OutStream.Write(Buffer,BufferLen);
      Until BufferLen = 0;
      If OutStream.Size = 0 Then Exit;
      Result := True;
    Finally
      InternetCloseHandle(hURL);
    end
  Finally
    InternetCloseHandle(hSession);
  end
end;

NOTE: Must handle JPEGs that do not actually exist.  (possibly returning a nil object - OR - a boolean)

Oops, this should fix it for non existing images.
function GetInetFile(const FileURL: String; OutStream: TMemoryStream): Boolean;

  Buffer: Array[1..BufferSize] Of Byte;
