Can the pics uploaded to LJ be hotlinked to other sites?

I think if you lock the post with the pic, even if it's linked, you can't see it unless someone is on your flist.

I see. But if I upload a pic and want to link it to another site it will work, right?

What do you mean, lol? If you upload a pic in LJ, and it's in an unlocked post, anyone can see it and I think anyone can link to it. If you lock your post, only your flist can see the pic and even if someone were to link to the pic, unless they're on your flist, they can't see it.
Is that what the question was?

LOL, I don't even understand myself today. What I mean is if you can use LJ-uploaded photos to link pics on non LJ sites, like you would a photobucket accout, for example. I think yes, but I'm just having a blonde moment.

Hmmm. Are you talking about using the lj storage space thingie? Because I'm not sure you can hotlink it then. I think you'd have to have photobucket or webspace to do that. I think lj might block people from using pics they're hosting on sites other than lj. I've never tried.

Yeah, that's what I was talking about. Bummer.
