If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it must have the suitable software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that may be installed on a server and that work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app that you would like, regardless of the language it was created 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 including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
