Curl is not a browser. In facts, even if you download
using curl, you don't actually *see* that image. :-)

You need to parse the downloaded document, usually html,
xhtml, or xml, in order to learn about styles, images,
scripts, frames and other data referenced therein.
Executing the scripts may result in yet more documents
to download and parse, and so on.
