    Thanks for the Tutorial.

    I am using wget -i filename.txt to download all the images listed in text file, However there is one problem, In the end of images URL the pattern is something like this 1-foto-000.jpg?20180711125016 and the name of the saved file is 1-foto-000.jpg?20180711125016

    How can I save the file name till .jpg and not after that ?
