If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it needs to have the correct software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be set up on a hosting server and that work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, no matter what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with more than one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
