Can you be more specific?
Do you mean they should change dynamically in the browser
or that they will change after a form submission?
In other words is the change done as part of a refresh of the
page or dynamically within the browser? If its the latter there
caching a set of images and selecting the appropriate one
in response to user events.
If you mean as part of a server page refresh then normal CGI
techniques will work. Again if you have a list of images you
can select the appropriate one.

I'm not sure where PIIL comes in? Normally PIL would be used
to create the images before displaying them. What part of the
problem are you haveing difficulty with - creating the images?
(maybe dynamically?) or displaying a different image to the user?
