If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it should have the proper software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a web server and which work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
