If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it needs to have the correct software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website 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 that can be set up on a hosting server and that work with a great number of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application you want, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

In addition, you can convert text to images, which will give you quite a lot of opportunities with regards to what content you will be able to offer on the website.
