Yes, that is exactly how it would work. Of course, you can use that same method for any poster for that matter.

http://dominio.com/images/Splash_HD.jpg isn't a valid accessible url.  Try loading it in a web browser and it displays a domain registration page.  Check your permissions.

Take note to destruk's post and make sure you use a valid and accessible photo url. The url you are using is a redirect to domino.com
