If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it must have the suitable software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a server and that work with a large amount of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
