If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it ought to have the correct software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and which work with a lot of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
