If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server where you host it must have the suitable software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be installed on a hosting server and that work with a lot of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
