hide or modify image url

Postby sergio_mi » Fri May 21, 2004 1:30 am

in an html page a jpeg is generated by a php page:
<img src="imgCreator.php?var=2">
right click -> property on the image you can see its url:
http://www.sitename.com/img/common/imgC ... var=2.jpeg.
I'd like to if there's a way to hide or modify the image url.
something like http://www.sitename.com/
if in the meantime i find a solution I'll post it
thanks

No, you can´t hide that!
Change the script to create an apropriated url!

you can apply some hash/encryption methods to access that url, to prevent the users from using it.

No, practically speaking, you can't. The best you could do is check the referrer to keep it from being linked to from other sites.
