If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it must 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 site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be installed on a hosting server and that work with a lot of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective 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 over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
