Using wget to download images and updating to capture new ones from link

So I did my research of wget to download images from a site and used the following...

wget -r --level=0 -x -k -np
Everything went great, it took up tons of space and it captured all the different "names" that had different folders inside, and the images inside of those.

Well, when I went to check the website again, a day later, more folders got added to some names, and naturally new images appeared. I read the man pages for wget to see of a way to "update" and not repeat downloading the images I had gotten already but did not see anything that would behave the way I wanted.

How do I update with wget for new images/directories and not re-download what I have already from the same path(s)?

Read the man page again and take a look at the 'mirror' option
