If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it should have the appropriate software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a hosting server and that work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based app that you would like, irrespective 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 one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
