If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a server and which work with a large amount of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application that you would like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
