I want to load an image from a URL but am finding it hard to test as  access control checks stop me testing in HTML5 or Flash. Anyone know of a workaround?

I've used a CORS extension in Chrome which theoretically will allow cross-domain, but it still blocks the download as the image is considered to be invisible by the browser.
