If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it must have the correct software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site 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 - two pieces of software which may be installed on a web server and which work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based app you want, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
