Abstract
For over two years the European Southern Observatory has provided an image processing service for its staff and for visiting astronomers. It is in the process of updating both the hardware and the software that support this service. We present some details of the philosophy behind this service and some of the important lessons we have learned. We discuss various aspects of the astronomical image processing service concept.
