If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine where you host it should have the proper software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a hosting server and that work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
