If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server where you host it must have the suitable software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a web server and which work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application you want, 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 over one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
