Using PIL with CGI scripts

See the StringIO module (actually, cStringIO).

One thing to keep in mind - unless the image is *really* dynamic (i.e., it
changes EVERY time someone accesses it), you're much better off if you write
it to disk.

See at  for an example of this (it's a
command line utility that HTMLifys a directory of images, but it does use
cStringIO in this manner).
