If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine where you host it should have the proper software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be installed on a server and which work with a lot of widely used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
