If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it should have the proper software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be installed on a server and that work with a great number of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
