If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it must have the suitable software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script app. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a web server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
