If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server where you host it must have the correct software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up 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, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
