IOD: Dynamically Generated Images for Advertising


This one is really for the Xbox Live team to implement. I'd love to have a cool looking image on the side of my blog with my Xbox Live gamertag and possibly some recent stats ala Feedberner. Sure, I could go into Photoshop like everyone else does, but why doesn't the Xbox live team offer this as a service for their community?  It would be free advertising for them and the images created would look better than what I could photoshop.  I'm interested in creating images that look like the one on this blog.

    Josh – Cory Smith did exactly that on his xboxfriends.com site. I guess he created a few images by hand and then then requests got overwhelming and he created an ASP.NET page to generate them for you:

    Thanks! Sweeeeet. Well, I got my wish. Fanciful stats would be cool to so I could brag about how good/bad I am at Halo2 wherever I put my logo. 🙂 but beggers can’t be choosers.
