Image position

Is it possible to know the absolute position in pixels for one element (image for example) placed on a web page.

I would like to open a layer where the image is clicked. Now I am doing this using the cursor position but. it depens on where is clicked to recalculate the position of the layer.

Is there any property of the image that tells the position.
