How to save a file from an URL

Can someone tell me how to write php code to save an image from the
internet to the server? For example, if there was a picture at
http://somepage.com/hello.jpg I want to write a php script that would
take that picture and save it to my server so I could access it as
http://localhost/hello.jpg.

I need to do this in php because there are a lot of these pictures and
I want to save all of them at once.

Thanks for your help!

<?
//set to the URL of the file you want to download:
$inPath = "http://somepage.com/hello.jpg";
//set to the local path where the file should be saved:
$outPath = "/usr/local/htdocs/hello.jpg";

$in = fopen($inPath, "rb");
$out = fopen($outPath, "wb");

while ($chunk = fread($in,8192) ) {
fwrite($out, $chunk, 8192);
}

fclose($in);
fclose($out);
?>
