Regex to catch image links on a page

This is a short regex that I created to catch images on a page

Regex Pattern= http:[^”]*jpg

Even Better Regex (Lazy) =¬†http:[^”]*?jpg

A valid link must not include quote(“). It must start with http and must end with jpg(in our example).

Basically what the regex does is matches all characters except quote in the string. This works perfect to catch every single image on a link.
