The JS method is very powerful since you get lots of information like
screen resolution, browser plugins, the time when the user leaves the

But if you don't want to rely on JS, you could access the Piwik API
also from within PHP. The API documentation is here:

To track downloads, $EnableDirectDownload should be zero.

OTOH, this method doesn't yield that much more information than
sending the server log files to Piwik.

Or one could add the referrer to the picture tracking URL. Seemingly
we have to cunstruct and send also the URL in this case.

So there is some potential to improve the Piwik integration.
