It's not clear from your post: are you downloading from a
website or from an FTP site? In my experience, FTP sites are
the only ones that don't specify the image size. I suspect
FTP is going to have a hard time working with the '-c'
option, but that's just a guess. If you're using FTP, try to
find an HTTP alternate to the image you're downloading. If
you're not using FTP, then I'm very wrong. :-)
