I have AccessKeyID for AWS.
I tried following. How can I get Signature? ( I request to provide help here itself, not just link to documents, as I have read all documents but could not get it. Thanks)

http://webservices.amazon.com/onca/xml?
  Service=AWSECommerceService
  &Operation=ItemLookup
  &ResponseGroup=Images
  &IdType=ASIN&
  &ItemId=B004HO6I4M
  &AWSAccessKeyId=[Your_AWSAccessKeyID]
  &AssociateTag=[Your_AssociateTag]
  &Timestamp=[YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ]
  &Signature=[Request_Signature]

You need to create a sorted canonicalized query string and encrypt the full request  with your private key.
This code is untested, as I don't have a merchant account.

function createAWSSignature($operation,$secret_key){
    return base64_encode(hash_hmac("sha256",$operation,$secret_key,true));
}

$method = "GET";
$host = "webservices.amazon.com";
$uri = "/onca/xml";

// additional parameters
$params["Service"] = "AWSECommerceService";
// GMT timestamp
$params["Timestamp"] = gmdate("Y-m-d\TH:i:s\Z");
$params["Version"] = "2013-08-01";
$params["Operation"] = "ItemLookup";
$params["ResponseGroup"] = "Images";
$params["IdType"] = "ASIN";
$params["ItemId"] = "B004HO6I4M";
$params["AWSAccessKeyId"] = [Your_AWSAccessKeyID];
$params["AssociateTag"] = [Your_AssociateTag];

$AWSPrivateKey=[Your_AWSPrivateKey] ; 

// sort the parameters
ksort($params);

// create the canonicalized query
$canonicalized_array = array();
foreach ($params as $param=>$value)
{
    $value = rawurlencode($value);
    $canonicalized_array[] = $param."=".$value;
}
$canonicalized_query = implode("&", $canonicalized_array);

// create the string to sign

$string_to_sign = $method."\n".$host."\n".$uri."\n".$canonicalized_query;
$signature=createAWSSignature($string_to_sign,$AWSPrivateKey);

Thank you shalomc, but I realized that direct using get method is not secured. So can you help me to suggest direct php function to retrieve image URL directly?

Hey

This is a different matter, probably worthy of a different subject.
Do you have a response example?

I don't have the merchant account that you have, so can't send you a response example.
I suggest that you get a response example using the code from above, and then we can discuss how to read it.

So can you help me getting function like

    return getPictureUrl;
}

It is actually bad practice in Experts-Exchange to change the subject of a question in the middle of a thread.
This one started as a question on how to create signed API calls, and morphed into requests to parse some API responses. I suggest that you close this question, and open a new one about finding the image URL. In this way future EE users will search and find relevant answers.  

Cheers
