ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn more about ImageMagick and GD Library and discover why they are currently present on almost every single server.
If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it must have the appropriate software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be installed on a hosting server and which work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based app you want, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
