If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it should have the appropriate software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All of these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a web server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based app that you would like, no matter what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
