It works the same way; just point the src attribute of your img tag to
the URL for your custom image handler.  You should be able to include
query parameters or whatever else you need in the URL.  Think of the
an img tag as telling the browser "request the source URL, and then
display the request content in the page (if it's a valid image)".
