The exclusion appears to be for paths only..
You can see the details at

I have seen example of :

disallow: email.htm

so my thought was *.jpg would be allowable but not sure about the wildcard.

If your images are all in one folder you can disallow that folder.

Wildcards are an extension supported by Google (see their "Webmaster Info" document) but it's not a part of the robots.txt standard - the standard says the value is interpreted as a full or partial path.

Also to be on the safe side you should write Disallow: instead of disallow:

Thanks, guess I am going to bite the bullet and move
all of the images over to an image folder.
