If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it must have the appropriate software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a server and that work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
