Depends on how your web server etc. is set up.

One way: make two separate sites, then delete all the images from one.
Have the html files suffixed with the language code:
index.html.en or index.html.[whatever it is for danish]
and then merge the two trees. This would need some simple but deep bash
or perl scripting.

Or keep the trees apart, and any requests for a JPG file in the tree
that does not have pictures, rewrite (using Apache rules) to refer to
the other tree. This needs knowledge of Apache configuration.

Or bug Jerome :-)
