If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it must have the appropriate software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be set up on a web server and that work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with more than a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
