If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it should have the appropriate software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may 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 doable via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be installed on a server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app you want, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
