LWP::UserAgent Image Corruption

DST609 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I wrote the following script to retrieve images (runs in loop), save and resize however I am getting the following error in image magick when reading the downloaded image:

Exception 450: Unsupported marker type 0x54

If I download the LWP downloaded image to my computer, open it in a photo editor, re-save as .jpg, upload-overwrite and attempt to read with imagemagick all is fine. This would lead me to believe that the image is not saving correctly. I need to use UserAgent because the server I am connecting to won't allow the download unless it thinks a client is requesting the data.
use LWP::UserAgent; use Image::Magick; $ua = new LWP::UserAgent; $ua->agent("$0/0.1 " . $ua->agent); $ua->agent("Mozilla/8.0"); my $PICURL =""; my $PICDEST="/var/vhosts/"; my $PICNAME="01.jpg"; my $response = $ua->get("$PICURL"); open(outfile, ">:raw", "$PICDEST/$PICNAME"); binmode outfile; if ($response->is_success) { print outfile $response->content; $Pi++; $PTOT++; } else { die $response->status_line; } $image = new Image::Magick; $image->Read("$PICDEST/$PICNAME"); $image->Scale(width=>800, height=>600); $image->Write("$PICDEST/$PICNAME"); $image->Scale(width=>216, height=>163); $image->Set(quality=>90); $image->Write("$PICDEST/TH_$PICNAME");

    This would lead me to believe that the image is not saving correctly.

    LWP does not corrupt images, end of story :)
