If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine in which you host it should have the suitable software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a web server and that work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
