get all those image files
#rsync -avz firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/pathtofiles/ .
ah yes, but I will get a complaint from subversion about my directory being out of sync because what I just did was downloaded the .svn file from the server over that directory. They arent the same, so your svn update now crashes. What do do?
# rsync -avz –exclude=.svn …….then everything else after that. More options in the man pages.
