This is not a recommended configuration; MediaWiki is primarily designed
to be used for open sites.
Move your images directory ($wgUploadDirectory) outside the web root on
the filesystem, or use Apache configuration / .htaccess files to forbid
web access to it. Then set $wgUploadPath to point at img_auth.php.
This requires that your PHP setup support PATH_INFO (many CGI
configurations do not) and you need to be in $wgWhitelistRead mode or
else, of course, there wouldn't be a point.
If you just want to hide images, but let pages be viewed, well that
doens't make much sense to me and it probably won't work.
