For tips on banner ad services, I'd simply suggest looking over phpAds
and other such apps (See freshmeat.net).

Displaying images in this fashion is fairly simple.

In the html, as you've already provided, set the <img src=".."> to a
PHP script, possibly with a query string.  Then, your phpads.php3 would
be responsible for outputing the image data, along with the proper HTTP
header to tell the browser that you're sending it an image.


// phpads.php3

// Set the appropriate mimetype for the image
Header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');

$filename = '/path/to/file.jpg';

// Output the image data


That's it.
