Of course, if this is legit, you could point us at the source of the image and we could verify that what you are asking us to help you with isn't breaking any T&Cs.

Of course this is against the TOS, just like any form of web scraping. The source site thinks that only humans should have any use of the data so make it hard to access, and I want to automate a process that involves the magnitude of the data.

While everybody here was being so cynical and snooty, the Python community welcomed me and helped me convert the script to Python so I could easily interface with OpenCV. And another soul sees the light- not a better language per se, but a better community for sure.
