If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a server and which work with a lot of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
