Images on the Web are evolving from static JPEG and GIF files to structured formats such as SVG and dynamic images produced using the canvas element. The potential exists for descriptive information about the image to be closely coupled, and perhaps, contained within the image format itself. The concept of Smart Images is put forward as an approach where images directly contain sufficient information, exposed through a standard interface, to allow access in a user's preferred modality.
