Default Custom field - URL for image.

Ok so I'm a little web space challenged and all these uploaded images are piling up on my server. Is there any way to have a custom field similar to thumbnail to url where you just input the picture's url at say my photobucket account and then it would display inline as a module and link to the actual image?

This would save me so much space. I really hope this isn't something to horribly complicated.

I suppose you could just use a text input for the path, then use a custom template to display it? Or just use a Snipped URL custom field.

Thanks Geek I went the text/custom template route and it worked great.

My custom template in case anyone wants to do the same.

HTML Code:
<tr>
<if condition="$itemtitle">
<td><strong>$itemtitle</strong></td>
</tr>
<tr>
</if>
<td align="center">
<a href="$value" target="blank"><img src="$value" width="150px" height="200px border="0" alt="Click here for the full size image" title="Click here for the full size image"></a>
</td>
</tr>
