If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server where you host it should have the proper 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 site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be installed on a server and that work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app that you would like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
