If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it should have the correct software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be installed on a server and which work with a large amount of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
