If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it ought to have the proper software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be installed on a server and which work with a great number of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
