If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it needs to have the suitable software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a web server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
