You can create another script called viewimage.asp and pipe the image name 
via the Query String. I use the SoftArtisan's FIleManager DLL/Component to 
do the binary read and then use binary write to stream it to the browser. 
Just make sure you tell the browser the mime type.

Here's my code: I pass the Image name via the Session Object, modify to 
suit your needs.

     if not isEmpty(Session("TargetImage")) then
         varFileLocation = varFileDir & CStr(Session("TargetImage"))
         Set oFM = CreateObject("SoftArtisans.FileManager")
         Set oBS = oFM.OpenBinaryFile(varFileLocation)
         Response.ContentType = "image/GIF"
         Response.Addheader "Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=" & 
         Response.BinaryWrite oBS.ReadAll

         'Clean up....
         Set oBS = Nothing
         Set oFM = Nothing
         Session("TargetImage") = Empty
     end if
