No, thats not a symlink. The pics are saved in the image/item 
directory created by user.

Uh, not with NFS. Its a god idea for local network, but IMHO not for 
inet. My prob is, that we want to use a ic server with a few 
people. The domains are hosted by "normal" webhosters. I think i 
will write a cron for rsync or write a new upload script.
I hoped, that i havn't seen something so i ask...

Thanks for your answer
