Learn more about ImageMagick and GD Library and discover why they're now present on almost every server.
If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it should have the proper software for this. Rather than 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 application. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that may be installed on a server and which work with a wide range of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
