If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it needs to have the proper software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be installed on a server and that work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based application that you'd like, irrespective of the 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.
