  If you are using Apache (a good chance) you can use mod_rewrite (if it's
enabled) to check the referer and redirect (internally within Apache) to
another graphic or just return a 404.  Works reguardless if Javascript is
enabled or not.  It would look something like:

	RewriteCond	%{REQUEST_URI}	.*\.jpg$
	RewriteRule	%{HTTP_REFERER}	!^http://www\.example\.net/.*
	RewriteRule	.*		/
