Make a dump, then dumpfilter the dump_file for *.JPG:

cat dump_file | svndumpfilter exclude path/*.jpg > filtered_dump_file.

Note you must use absolute paths. So if you have folder1/*.JPG
and folder2/*.JPG you must dumpfilter twice.

     Are you willing to spend time studying the issues,
     making yourself aware, and then conveying that information
     to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation
     to get a government handout for your community?
     Realize that the doctor's fight against socialized medicine is your fight.
     We can't socialize the doctors without socializing the patients.
     Recognize that government invasion of public power
     is eventually an assault upon your own business.
     If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid
     of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government,
     recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he'll eat you last.
