in reply to Output image with cgi script

You need to send out the appropriate HTTP header in your image generation CGI script, which should be at minimum:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w print "Content-Type: image/png\n\n"; print "../images/pic1.png";
Update ...and as others have pointed out, you need to print the file itself to STDOUT, not just the name of the file.

It's not what you know, but knowing how to find it if you don't know that's important
