If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it must have the suitable software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be installed on a web server and that work with a great number of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based app that you would like, no matter 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 such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
