How are you grabbing and parsing the RSS? Can you show the relevant code? I'm assuming if the path for the image is relative you are going to have to grab the site's domain, as well, and concatenate them together, is this also true? If you are using something like SimpleXML then this shouldn't be very difficult.

Dear eelixduppy
here is my the code, but the author didnt used any example how to get image url.
==> class

class lastRSS {
var $default_cp = 'windows-1253';
var $CDATA = 'nochange';
var $cp = '';
var $items_limit = 0;
var $stripHTML = False;
var $date_format = '';

// -------------------------------------------------------------------
// Private variables

var $channeltags = array ('title', 'link', 'description', 'language', 'copyright', 'managingEditor', 'webMaster', 'lastBuildDate', 'rating', 'docs');
var $itemtags = array('title', 'link', 'description', 'author', 'category', 'comments', 'enclosure', 'guid', 'pubDate', 'source');
var $imagetags = array('title', 'url', 'link', 'width', 'height');
var $textinputtags = array('title', 'description', 'name', 'link');

// -------------------------------------------------------------------
// Parse RSS file and returns associative array.
// -------------------------------------------------------------------

// If CACHE ENABLED

$timedif = @(time() - filemtime($cache_file));
if ($timedif < $this->cache_time) {
// cached file is fresh enough, return cached array
$result = unserialize(join('', file($cache_file)));
// set 'cached' to 1 only if cached file is correct
if ($result) $result['cached'] = 1;
} else {
// cached file is too old, create new
$result = $this->Parse($rss_url);
$serialized = serialize($result);
if ($f = @fopen($cache_file, 'w')) {
fwrite ($f, $serialized, strlen($serialized));
fclose($f);
}
if ($result) $result['cached'] = 0;
}
}
// If CACHE DISABLED >> load and parse the file directly
else {
$result = $this->Parse($rss_url);

}
// return result
return $result;
}

// -------------------------------------------------------------------
