If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a web server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
