Okay, here is what im trying to do, Say someone loads an image from my server, i want an htaccess file on my server, that will cause them to jump to my website. Not just try and load my website where there image would be. Is this possible?

Can't be done. You would need to have control over their server to be able to redirect them to your site. What you can do though is make sure they're unable to load your image onto their site, also called hotlinking. Here (http://altlab.com/htaccess_tutorial.html) is a tutorial on how to prevent hotlinking. Hope it helps.

no, i know how to prevent hotlinking, as well as my host allowing me to "flip a switch" on hotlinking as well.
