Diocia,

There are a number of software libraries which allow you to generate images on the fly. All of them require that components be installed on your server, so you will have to shop around to find a server that supports the one you wish to use. Mark_FreeSoftware has given you some information on PHP image handling, you can also do it with Perl, ASP or ASP.NET. Here's some information for you:

ASP.NET
