If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it ought to have the correct software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be installed on a web server and which work with a great number of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app you want, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
