As I understand, there is no point in using gzip to serve images since
they are usually already compressed and/or not very well suited to
textual compression. In fact, I suspect that if you serve a document
with a Content-Type of image/gif, image/jpeg, image/png, etc., either
PHP or Apache will detect that and bypass the gzip handler. (That's
just a guess, though. I don't have any way at present to test that

Based on Nisse's response, I think you're better off leaving the
Content-Length header out entirely (as we already suggested).
