If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a server and which work with a great number of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based app you want, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
