If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine in which you host it must have the suitable software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be installed on a hosting server and which work with a great number of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based application that you would like, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
