If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it needs to have the suitable software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a server and that work with a large amount of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based app that you would like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
