If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it must have the proper software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be set up on a web server and that work with a lot of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based app that you would like, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with more than one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
