image_style_url returns the public url of an image in the
files/styles folder. Is it possible to create alias to that? What I want is the following:
image_style_url from the image style and the uri, which gives me typical public url
/sites/default/files/style/[style_name]/path/to/image/[image_file_name]. I want to serve simple url like
/image/[randomized_number] to the user that will internally alias to the aforementioned public url. This is similar to asking what pathauto module does for
/node/[nid], but for image styles.
Note that I do not want custom url to individual images per se, but rather a way to programmatically create unique unpredictable url aliases for image styles.
