If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine where you host it must have the proper software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a server and that work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
