If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it ought to have the proper software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, irrespective 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 over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
