If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine where you host it ought to have the proper software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be installed on a server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based app that you would like, no matter what language it was designed 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, etc.
