If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it should have the proper software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a hosting server and that work with a lot of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based app you'd like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
