If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it ought to have the appropriate software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that may be installed on a hosting server and which work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
