ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library can be used for and why they are so well liked.
If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could 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 - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a web server and which work with a great number of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based application that you would like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with over 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
