If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it must have the proper software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a hosting server and which work with a lot of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based application you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with over 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
