I have tried to use fsockopen to get an image from my 2 other sites, but the problem is, they are using a htaccess file which does not allow me to do so....so I think I will need curl or a function that forges the http refferer header so that it thinks you are requesting the page from that same domain
img to get http://blah.com/imgs/img22.jpg
forged header should be "http://blah.com
then normally save the image in a folder....
I have also tried copy() but i am getting a 403 access error (because no referer header)
If you have any other ideas feel free to express them as i am totally lost, if you would like to see the code i used in my experiments please reply and say so and i'll post it
