Initial Code
RewriteEngine On
#Replace ?mysite\.com/ with your blog url
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(.+\.)?mysite\.com/ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
#Replace /images/nohotlink.jpg with your "don't hotlink" image url

Initial URL

Initial Description
Replace "mysite" with your own and this will block access to sites attempting to link to your images. Note, it's not necessarily always a bad thing for people to link to your images. If you run a blog, portfolio, or sales gallery, etc, you may actually want your images to show up in google image search results and the like. Careful that you're not blocking your goals along with the images. Make sure this script is for you.

Initial Title
htaccess - disallow linking to images from outside your site
