Mixed Content from multiple servers fix

I know this topic has been brought up here hundreds of times and I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but since it involves the purchase of a SSL cert, I thought I would verify my suspicision first.

I have a site that has a SSL cert attached to it.  I have another site without a SSL cert that serves images to the first site.  Consequentially, my users get the Mixed Content warning.  Since I control both sites, if I were to get a SSL cert for the second site for the images, would that eliminate the error?  My assumption is the warning would go away, but I would like the opinion of others that deal with it on a regular basis before I buy the 2nd cert.

A following question to the original, if my image server also serves up another website that does not require a SSL cert, is there any harm in attaching the cert even if most content won't use it?  I'm assuming not, but thought it better to ask first.

You've answered your own question - it would eliimate the mixed content warning.
For the second part, just because you have a cert attached to the domain doesn't mean you have to use https from other sites, but doing so has no detrimental effect (except being marginally slower to serve the content)
