An alternative way to generate images is to use the Mathematica command Export, available for use with the function MSPExportImage. This provides more features, such as transparent backgrounds, but takes longer to generate. MSPExportImage always makes use of the Mathematica front end.

MSP Functions Returning Images

There are various MSP functions that return images: , MSPShowAnimation, and MSPExportImage; in addition MSPFormat may return an image. It should be noted that these all work by returning a string that contains the necessary img tag to reference the image file that is stored on the server. An example is shown below.
