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.
