If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it should 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 may even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a server and which work with a lot of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based application that you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
