i guess it's just a potentially less error prone method, if the URLs are coming out at the source (i.e. the image selector) as relative, rather than having to modify the URL later using string operations to chop them down. Talking of chopping, consider this analogy: if you needed some wood for some building work, you wouldn't buy a tree and process it into a usable state yourself, you'd buy the wood pre-processed, because who knows what could go wrong otherwise! but if its the only solution i guess it will do :-)
as always thanks very much for the help!
