Also once I do Response.ContentType = "image" or whatever do I just response.write "image.gif" to make the image appear?

The mime types for
gif: image/gif
jpg: image/jpeg
png: image/png

After setting the content type, you have to read the image file and write it out to the response.stream.

You use Response.Write to add to the response stream.

Just open the image file, then use the ReadAll method to read the file into a string. Then write the string using Response.Write.
