Image URLs and mod rewrite

Postby servantofgod » Sat Oct 04, 2008 7:44 am

I work for an e-commerce co. We have a site here: http://www.whatsshopping.com.

We have product pages as:

http://www.whatsshopping.com/products-b ... -70801.php

The product ID in that url is : Z4DJX-70801.php

If you go to the page you will see the product image. The image file name is: Z4DJX-70801.jpg

Is there a way that I can the product name to the image ID? So when google indexes the image it will also know what the image is instead of seeing a SKU?

For example: the image name would then be: MP4-Watch-2GB-Z4DJX-70801.jpg

This would have to work in a way that does not create thousands of broken image links...
