If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and that work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based application you'd like, no matter what 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 a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
