If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. As opposed 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 may even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which could be set up on a hosting server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app you want, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with more than one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
