If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it ought to have the correct software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be set up on a server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app that you would like, no matter what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

This will allow you to set up multimedia sites without having to worry about any tech restrictions on our end. In case you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while when you own a social network or a similar website that engages your visitors in some way, you can provide them with a number of editing solutions for the photographs that they upload. You can also convert text to images, which will give you quite a lot of opportunities with regards to what content you can offer on the website.
