If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine where you host it needs to have the correct software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a web server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
