There's (at least) a couple ways to accomplish that.

One way is to shorten your main toolbar (remove icons from it) so that the 
location toolbar doesn't "wrap" onto the next line.  This is possibly why 
your location bar moves when viewing images, since (depending on your 
embedded image viewer) the picture view may use less icons in the main 
toolbar than the regular HTML view.

The other (more reliable) way to achieve this is to directly add the location 
bar itself to the main toolbar.  To do this, you'll need to go to 
the "Configure Toolbars" dialog and remove the "Location Bar" entry from the 
Location Toolbar.  Then, you can select the Main Toolbar and add 
the "Location Bar" entry there.  (Konqueror won't show the location bar in 
the main toolbar if it's included in both places.)

As for the screenshot at Wikimedia Commons, that's Kubuntu's implementation of 
Konqueror.  As I recall, Kubuntu uses that configuration of Konqueror as 
default, though I don't know how exactly they've achieved it.

Hope this helps.
