If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it needs to have the proper software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with more than 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
