wget images

What I'm trying to do is wget images, however, i'm not sure how to do it 100% right...

what ive got is a index.html page that has images(thmubs) that link to the full size images. how do i grab the full size images?

Example of links on the page:
<a href="images/*random numbers*.jpg" target="_blank"><img border=0 width=112 height=150 src="images/tn_*random numbers*.jpg" style="position:relative;left:3px;top:3px" /></a>

i tried
wget -A.jpg -r -l1 -np URLHERE

but only got the thumbs.

You only got the thumbnails because these are embedded using image tags, whereas the full size images are linked (and you have limited the recursion to a single level using '-l1').
