Anti-deep linking software

I have a better idea: Write a piece of software that renames all the images on your website once a day. (And have the img-Tags in your site autogenerated so they always point to the right file name, of course.)

So when someone deeplinks an image, it will only work for a day.

Wow, that is a simpler solution...heh, thanks.

Don't some webservers already have referer-checking for deep-linking prevention? So if the request originates from another site, the image will not be shown / will be replaced by another picture. Though your solution would work as an extra layer, without the need to change the server software itself.
