If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it must have the correct software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a web server and which work with a large amount of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
