If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it needs to have the proper 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 site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
