If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it must have the correct software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a hosting server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with more than 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
