If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it needs to have the proper software for this. 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 can even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that may be installed on a web server and that work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app 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 more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
