If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it should have the suitable software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be installed on a server and which work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
