If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it needs to have the correct software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be set up on a hosting server and that work with a lot of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
