readfile and images

I'm trying to replace <IMG SRC="some image"> with the usage of readfile, but
without luck. I have seen examples like this:

        header ('Content-length: ' .filesize($image_file));
        header ('Content-type: image/jpeg');
        readfile ($image_file);

This works OK unless you have modified the header before. What I like to do
is to display the image *within* HTML codes, something like:

                echo "This is image $image_file:<BR>";
                readfile ($image_file);

But if I try to use the readfile as show above, I only get garbage... (as
expected). So... how can I replace a <IMG..> statement with the use of

I got it... I have to use <IMG SRC=some-php-script.php?arg=filename> and
then use the code shown at the top.
