If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it needs to have the correct software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be set up on a web server and that work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
