If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it must have the proper software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based application you'd 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 over one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
