Get the full path of an image

Is it possible to retrieve the local full path of an image ( not the url )?

You say "local full path" -- is the image on your local file system?
Or do you mean "remote full path" -- for example:


might resolve to:

d:\inetpub\wwwroot\www\user23\{folder}\{subfolder} \image.gif

You should be able to get the location and the image src string and
work it out from there (allowing for relative paths like
../../images/image.gif and root paths like /images/image.gif)

You would also have to look for a path meta tag (can't remember the
name of it right now...)

A bit of regular expression matching and string concatenation should do
the trick, however it isn't reliable as the src string may be parsed by
the server and return something totally different. There is nothing
that guarantees that the image src actually points to an image.
