If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it needs to have the proper software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script app. All of these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which could be installed on a server and that work with a lot of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based app you want, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
