If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it should have the appropriate software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based app that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
