Thats going to be a bit of programming, but basically you will have to find the IMG or img tags, extract the SRC or src attribute and figure out what that means in terms of a URL. Keeping in mind that an image source might be an absolute or a relative URL - also that there may be a BASE tag in the page that specifies a base different from the one the page lives at.
Once you figure out the real URL you can open a URLConnection, get an InputStream, and read the binary image data.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
