Why do Internet downloads save as subfolders on my Mac?

When I download something I want to save from the Internet I end up with subfolders in Finder (image, etc.) instead of one document or folder. How do I prevent this?

    change in your browser's Preferences.  if it's Safari you're using, open Preferences (under Safari in your menu bar) and look in the General pane – there's an option there for you to choose exactly where your downloads will be deposited
