If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it should have the appropriate software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a hosting server and which work with a great number of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
