Thank you for the detailed explanation. After reading the code again,
I still have two questions. First, is the following change appropriate ?

+++ b/ngx_http_image_filter_module.c

             return ngx_http_filter_finalize_request(r,

Second, Why not restrict the use of the image filter in the following way ?

--- a/ngx_http_image_filter_module.c

         return ngx_http_next_header_filter(r);
