If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it should have the suitable software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a web server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based app you want, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
