If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it ought to have the proper software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a web server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
