Image Sensor Design Tutorials

CMOS Chip Designer site publishes a number of nice tutorials on image sensor design:

CMOS Image Sensors Overview - general Q&A
CMOS Pixel Design - starts from basics, does not go very far but still useful
Image Sensor Readout Circuits - ROIC - basic introduction, although some of the circuits do not represent the best practices, such as this one:

Column PGA and single-slope ADC with auto-zero

Update: The site owner took it offline. The content is still accessible for the next couple of days through Google cache by typing in the Google search field.

Update #2: The image sensor tutorials are back on-line.
