If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it should have the appropriate software for that. Rather than 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 may even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which could be set up on a hosting server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based app you want, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with more than 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
