comment Storing images in file system and returning URLs or virtually resizing and returning byte arrays?
Storage is quite cheap compared to the latency for generating these files in most scenarios - so I would go with generating all sizes and storing them. Unless you don't care about latency - then you could generate them on the run, but do look up the math on CPU time vs storage space. If you indeed go with on demand generation, consider the fact that you could add a cache for the most recent, there by reducing the actual generations considerably for repeat invocations. If your access pattern is a long tail (like most are), this would be most beneficial, at the cost of an extra layer of caching.
