Managing Multiple Seasonal/Time-Based Images

What makes time-based images so useful is that you don't have to pay attention to them in order for the changes to take place. You can set up the potential site images and a schedule for their implementation, then forget about it. Your server will take care of altering the look of your site for you.

The problem with the seasonal image, as we've defined it so far, is that it works for a single image. All images in the tblTimeimage table are considered different variations of the same graphic. What would be ideal is a theme-based system in which different images could be stored in a table and related to a group of dates. The only way to do this with the current system is to create a new table for each image. We definitely need a new technique.
