If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it should have the correct software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a hosting server and that work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
