You can use mod_rewrite for this, and it is entirely up to you if you
want this done with a redirect that is visible to the outside or not.

For example:

This will rewrite internally. To the outside world nothing changes:
RewriteRule /images/(.*)(.)(..)\.png     /newimages/$2/$3/$1$2$3.png

This will cause a redirect:
RewriteRule /images/(.*)(.)(..)\.png     /newimages/$2/$3/$1$2$3.png   [R]

If you do a redirect you need to worry about loops, which is why I
suggest you use a different basedir for your new images structure.

You can read about mod_rewrite here:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/rewrite/

Study this documentation and if you have any questions left after that
feel free to ask here...
