If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it should have the proper software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be set up on a web server and which work with a great number of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app that you would like, regardless 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 one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

Provided the script app that you use has in-built options to use pictures and graphs, it'll work perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've discovered it online, if it is a part of the script library that you will be able to access through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch.
