Try to Open a HTTP connection to that file. If you receive a 404 status response, it means that the image does not exist.

instead of doing
file = new File("http://www.ccim.com/services/member/profile/pictures/"+next_record.getMember_ID()+".jpg");

you should do..

URL img = new URL("http://www.ccim.com/services/member/profile/pictures/"+next_record.getMember_ID()+".jpg");
try{
HttpURLConnection con = img.getConnection();
if(con.getResponseCode!=HttpURLConnection.HTTP_NOT_FOUND)
//image exist
else
//image does not exist
}
catch(IOException e)
{
//image does not exist
}

P.S. Please note that it is just an elaboration of what enachemc is saying in previous post.

HttpURLConnection con = (HttpURLConnection )img.openConnection();
