If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it must have the appropriate 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 could even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and which work with a great number of widely used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
