If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine where you host it needs to have the appropriate 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 could even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which could be installed on a hosting server and which work with a great number of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
