create a .htaccess file in your images directory and put the following in it:

AuthUserFile /dev/null
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName RestrictImg
AuthType Basic

<Limit GET>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from yourdomain.com

This will deny any requests for images in that directly unless they come from
