If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it should have the suitable software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be set up on a hosting server and which work with a lot of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based app you want, no matter what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
