If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it should have the correct software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and that work with a lot of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app that you would like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
