If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. As an alternative to 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 could even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be set up on a web server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
