If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it must have the suitable software for that. As an alternative to 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 application. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be installed on a web server and which work with a large amount of widely used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application you want, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
