Why certainly:

<?php
define("CONTENT_ROOT", "/home/foo/content"); // outside of HTTP 
DOCUMENT_ROOT

$filename= CONTENT_ROOT."/path/to/image.jpg";
if  ( file_exists($filename) )
{
    header("Content-type: image/jpg");
    $content= file_get_contents($filename);
    print $content;
    exit;
}
else {
    print "<h1>File Not Found</h1><p>Sorry, $filename does not exist in 
".CONTENT_ROOT.".</p>";
}
?>

Perhaps there are better ways, but that's what I'm getting at.
