If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it must have the proper software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a hosting server and which work with a great number of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based app that you would like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting
