LWP to download images, how to let LWP decide, wether it is an image or not?by khippy (Scribe)

khippy has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am working on a kind of photo album, where you have a
browser admin page to put a picture and text in.
There is http or ftp download possible, how do I get LWP only to download images and no other mimetypes?If you want to look to a snippet of the running code, take a look at my scratchpad at my homenode.
As this code is running at linux I could do a system call with file to proove it is an image *after* having downloaded the file. But this is awful, isn't it? adTHANXvance
there are no silly questions
