If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server where you host it must have the appropriate software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a web server and which work with a lot of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based app you'd like, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
