Is there a way in php or html to change the referring URL that an image carries with it?

Example: could I display an image at my web site, but when it was accessed, have it look like its coming from a different web site?
echo$a[0]($a[2]("/[^a-z A-Z!]/","",$a[3](9,' ',$a[1]($b))),2,29);
Hand-coded PHP obfuscation... Don't you just love it?

Oh, no. You can, however, hide your image's real location, thus avoiding it from being hotlinked.

Basically, you will need an script checking if the request actually comes from your page, and if yes, outputs the image.

[a href=\"http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.image.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.image.php[/a]
[a href=\"http://www.php.net/manual/en/reserved.variables.php#reserved.variables.server\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net/manual/en/reserved.vari...ariables.server[/a] -> look for 'HTTP_REFERER'
