If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it needs to have the proper software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless of the language it was designed 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 including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
