If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it should have the proper software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a server and which work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
