Is anyone familiar with the overhead that this type of system might create, as compared to a standard request/response to apache? That is, to have PHP intercept the request for an image, check HTTP_REFERER - if it is null or from the local server, open the file, redirect to browser, close file, if not serve a default error image.
Also, would there be any danger (to the files in particular, but also with runaway processes or files left open) in using this method if a user cancels the request mid-stream?

Hi, I have a problem with a remote image. I hope someone can help me. People can post their link of their webpage at my site. I check if the file excists, fopen(). After that I scan the page for links. And the links for images. Then I would like to see the sizes of all those images. The problem is that there are servers that don't allow to brow straight to the images, it can only from the page self. So I look for something in php that surfs the the page en from that page to the links. I hope someone can help me.
