If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it ought to have the correct software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be set up on a server and which work with a large amount of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
