    I want to download a webcam image from a website a few times everyday so I can create a time lapse effect. The webcam is for the construction of a building in London, UK. However since I want to download the images every single day I'd prefer to use a program that saves the images from the web automatically, using a schedule feature and saving it onto my hard drive.

    Could anyone recommend a program that could do this for me, and show me where I could download such a program.

    I don't own the camera, the images I want to download are from this site http://www.51limestreet.com/gallery_cam.htm. I want to use a program that automatically downloads the images every few hours without me having to go to the site and saving the images myself, so that when the building is fully built I can create a time lapse movie showing its construction.

    :lease:

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    Thank you for replying, not being quite as computer litterate, could you please explain a little more. I downloaded the wget but when I run it, it simply flashes and doesn't actually open. I ran command prompt but everything I typed in was refused.

    Thanks again.
